Sustainability

You are here

When a program is no longer new, the focus of implementation becomes sustaining the program through continuous training for practitioners and other staff members and seeking new funding to support the program in future years. However, sustainability should not be thought of only as a sequential stage that only follows full implementation, but should be an active part of each stage above. For example, it is important to identify and maintain funding and other start-up resources during the early stages of implementation as well.
