A strategic plan allows our Health Unit to identify key roles, priorities, and directions over the next five years. It sets out what we plan to do, how we plan to do it, and how we will measure our progress. In 2011, the WECHU developed its first- ever strategic plan. The plan directed our focus to key areas within our organization, such as developing our workforce, creating a positive work environment, and improving organizational and program planning.
