Module 4: Planning for Sustainability
Sustainability addresses how to continue project activities beyond initial funding or how to expand and build your program beyond its existing components. It is important to think about sustainability early. This model discusses the key issues in planning for sustainability of oral health programs in rural communities, describes different payment models, and lists funders of oral health programs.
For an overview of the types of sustainability strategies that all types of programs might consider, see Sustainability Strategies in the Rural Community Health Toolkit.
