Monitoring Scale-up of Health Practices and Interventions
Several resources have been developed to assist program implementers with the process of scaling up. However, once scale-up is underway, few resources exist to help ensure continuous and systematic monitoring of the process to track progress toward sustainability of these innovations. The Guide to Monitoring Scale-up of Health Practices and Interventions was developed as a "how-to" resource to provide program implementers with a low-cost and replicable approach to monitoring the process of scaling up and institutionalizing innovations in health. The goal is to assist country stakeholders with identifying if scale-up is happening as intended, assess if the scale-up is adhering to the model or pilot, and determine if the scale-up efforts can be sustained to achieve the desired impact. While the guide focuses on the scale-up of family planning practices and innovations, it can be adapted to any scale-up experience in a given country context.
The webinar will be a presentation of the guide and discussion of key considerations for monitoring scale-up. It will benefit those managing and implementing the scale-up process, as well as those with an interest in monitoring scale-up.
The presenter, Bridgit Adamou, Program Manager for the MEASURE Evaluation Population and Reproductive Health (PRH) associate award, is the main author of the guide. She has made contributions to various M&E task teams and communities of practice with her family planning and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) expertise, particularly in indicator development. Ms. Adamou earned an MPH in International Health from Boston University and has worked primarily in the South Pacific and sub-Saharan Africa.
