[Extract] Once the available data about a community's population and its identified issues and problems have been analysed, the planning process to implememt a health promotion program and activities can commence. Community health teams in consultation with key stakeholders formulate a community-focused plan of action. Community-focused plans are based on evidence-based health priorities and contain specific goals and activities for achiving desired outcomes, as well as ways to evaluate these outcomes. Plans such as these are flexible and open to revision based on their inbuilt evaluation mechanisms, which can be lead to the re-planning of actions that are not meeting the overall goals.
