Strategic Directions are areas of emphasis that are contained within an organization’s mission and enable it to move toward its vision. The following ten Strategic Directions were identified and reached consensus on at a national multi-stakeholder workshop held in Kabul on December 7 and 8, 2010. Their order in no way reflects their importance.
This section will provide a brief description of each strategic direction including what it encompasses, the current situation related to it and why it is important, followed by Strategic Objectives and Priority Interventions for the next five years that were identified by relevant MoPH personnel and other key stakeholders through a highly participatory process. The strategic planning process will be followed within the next few months by an operational planning process where the priority interventions and activities will be further “fleshed out” and indicators and desired results identified to enable the monitoring and measuring of performance over time.
