Planning for scaling should be accomplished with the end in mind, and scaling actors should adopt a mindset for scale. These were two of the takeaways from the 20 September webinar cosponsored by ExpandNet and Spark Health Africa. The session, entitled Key learnings from public sector scaling of innovations in East Africa, brought together speakers from government and implementing partners to share their organizational experience with scaling public health and educational interventions.
The following featured speakers presented valuable experiences and insights about scaling up:
Edward Kataika, The East, Central, and Southern Africa (ECSA) Health Community
Easter Okello, Lake Region Economic Bloc (LREB) of Kenya
Paul Nyachae, The East Africa Hub of The Challenge Initiative (TCI)
The panel was moderated by Dr. Richard Chivaka, Founder and CEO of Spark Health Africa, and Laura Ghiron, Member of the ExpandNet Secretariat.
