Jurisdictions were also given the opportunity to record the wider or secondary influence of their activity beyond the selected primary focus. For some activity there are multiple aims, which may be activities relevant to a number of Actions under a Key Action Area or indeed to Actions across Key Action Areas. For example, an activity to improve access to eye health care services might target workforce supply and specifically the primary Action of develop and trial new eye care service (3A.(v)) with a secondary Action to promote the use of appropriate personnel (1D.(iv)).

The primary and secondary Actions mapped against the framework are shown in Figure 1.11 below. As might be expected, this had the dual effect of increasing the ‘intensity’ of activity against some Actions and increasing the coverage of Actions.

Description of Figure 1.11- The five diagrams above provide a more comprehensive picture of the jurisdictions wider or secondary influence of their activity beyond the selected primary focus. Each diagram illustrates the primary and secondary actions mapped against the five key action areas outlined in the National Framework.
