Implementation refers to the conversion of planning, goals, and objectives into action. It is the setting up, managing, and executing of a program.
There are several different phases relevant to program implementation. In some instances, these phases will occur in sequential order. In other instances, they occur simultaneously.
The key is to understand that all programs are diverse in nature and phases should be adapted to best meet the needs of the program.
Basic Phases of Implementation:
Phase 1: Start of a program
Phase 2: Identifying tasks to be completed and prioritizing those tasks to be completed
Phase 3: Establishing a system of management for completing tasks
Phase 4: Putting plans into action
Phase 5: Ending or sustaining a program
Evaluations are critical for all programs. It is a method to separate the successful programs from the ones that are not.

Review your health education program and how each of the phases of implementation will be addressed
Be sure to include examples
Determine the methodology desired for evaluating the efficacy of your health education program
Determine if formal or informal activities will be utilized and what will be assessed
Include a draft evaluation plan
