Designing the Strategies
Once objectives and targets are set, the planner assesses the different ways or strategies for achieving them. Choosing the best strategy again entails analyzing resources available and needed for each strategy. The potential strategies often include technology to be applied, procedures to be used and defining the role of communities and other sectors.
For each chosen strategy, the corresponding activities to be undertaken and the resources needed should be detailed, including who will do the activities (job description of all involved personnel) which things would be needed (equipment, materials and money), where the work will be done and the methods of controlling.
Who will help the contribution of communities and other sectors? The health planner should identify what information should be collected for controlling and decide how it would be used.
Determine resources required in terms of proposed strategy -the time, staff, facilities/materials and money. Estimate strategy costs and assess adequacy.
