Our definition of scaling up

Deliberate efforts to increase the impact of innovations successfully tested ​in pilot or experimental projects so as to benefit more people and to foster policy and program development on a lasting basis.

Deliberate efforts

Scaling up typically requires systematic guided efforts to achieve success.

Innovations

The package of interventions being scaled up. If the package is new in the local context, it is an innovation, even if implemented elsewhere.

Successfully tested

The intervention package requires local evidence of feasibility, acceptability and effectiveness to ensure appropriate fit to the context.

Benefit more people

Reaching new populations and/or geographic areas with interventions is a primary rationale for scale up.

Foster policy and program development

Embedding the innovation in the policies, organizational structures and operational guidelines is critical for sustainability.

On a lasting basis

Expansion of new interventions without ensuring continued implementation wastes valuable resources.
