Resource Type:Tool
Short Desc:CEDARS developed this manual in collaboration with the HealthPartners Uganda team as a supplemental resource in rolling out the ‘Taking the Long View’ Manual Sustainability Framework (SF) approach with their newly formed community-owned health cooperatives under the USAID-supported Health Collaborations Project. This resource adapts the SF concepts and approaches for community-level application with health cooperative stakeholders and provides guidance to NGO staff on to guide theses community groups in implementing the first steps of the SF approach: 1) System Situational Analysis 2) Visioning and Developing a Sustainability Scenario, and 3) Local System Assessment: Defining the Goals. Similar to the TOT Manual, this tool uses a mix of adult learning methodologies to encourage active involvement of the participants. As the Health Collaborations project focuses on building the sustainability of local community-owned health cooperatives, the framework has been adapted to such a project, but can easily be tailored to other contexts and programs. The CEDARS team is available to assist in adapting these resources to other contexts.
