Making it Happen

Implementation

Specific outcomes come from shared ownership and clear understanding of who does what at each stage of implementation.

Principles:

  • Use existing community networks for engaging communities in activities to promote health and wellbeing.
  • Identify, implement and measure timely, tangible objectives.
  • Incorporate standards to deliver quality outcomes.
  • Monitor and review the application of any regulation, policy or program.
