Health Council’s Modus Operandi
◼ Wheels will collaborate with local Organization/NGO that will be responsible for carrying out the project at the local site.
◼ Create a strategy and establish a short and long-term plan executed by collaborating NGOs.
◼ We will monitor and measure outcomes and impacts as per established performance matrix.
All projects will be implemented in phases as follows:
➢ Phase 1: Initially a pilot project for 3 to 6 months will be conducted at no more than six (6) sites to evaluate the feasibility (Only after successful completion, phase 2 will be initiated.)
➢ Phase 2: Expansion from 6 to 30 and up to 100 sites based on the results of phase 1. This must be a self-sustained by generating revenue to support all the activities.
➢ Phase 3: Large scale expansion by promoting public-private partnership and advocacy roles with state and central governments as the opportunities arise.
