ExpandNet tools and publications

Based on comprehensive literature reviews and the extensive experience of its members with major scale-up initiatives, ExpandNet, together with WHO, has produced tools, guides, and other resources which are being used by country teams, projects, and institutions in their scale-up endeavors.

Scaling-up guides

ExpandNet guides address the three phases of scaling up

ExpandNet-Big-Arrow-Cropped

The Beginning with the end in mind tool offers recommendations for designing and implementing a pilot, demonstration or implementation research project with scaling up in mind. It is also helpful to make mid-course corrections.

The Nine Steps for developing a scaling-up strategy tool and associated worksheets are based on the ExpandNet framework and provide stepwise guidance to develop a scaling-up strategy. It can also support the management of the scaling-up process.

The Practical Guidance tool identifies general scaling-up principles and provides examples from case studies of successful scale-up initiatives. It is helpful at the design stage, during implementation and to manage the scaling-up process.

Other ExpandNet scaling-up resources

These resources provide in-depth background on scaling up and a way to document scaling-up learning.

Scaling up health service delivery presents the ExpandNet framework based on extensive literature review followed by seven in-depth country case studies of scaling up in Africa; Asia and Latin America.

The ExpandNet/E2A Bibliography of Systematic approaches for scale up of best practices contains abstracts and links to papers relevant to systematic approaches to scale up. For a wider array of references, visit the scaling-up bibliography page on this site.

20 questions for developing a scaling-up case study can be used retrospectively or prospectively to document scaling-up experience. Our Practical Guidance tool can support preparing documentation related to these questions.
