For community-directed treatment (CDTI) activities to be considered sustainable, they must continue to function effectively for the foreseeable future, be integrated into available health care services, with strong community ownership, and using resources mobilized by the community and the government.

These guidelines highlight key elements of a CDTI sustainability plan. They are intended to help evaluators and national coordinators facilitate a meeting of stakeholders to develop a five-year CDTI post-APOC sustainability plan for submission to the management of APOC.
