Gates Blog Examines Proposed Framework To Scale Up Maternal, Newborn Health Interventions

In this post in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog, Gary Darmstadt, head of the Family Health Division at the foundation; Wolfgang Munar, senior program officer in the Family Health Division; and Amie Newman, a communications officer and editor of the blog, highlight a recently published paper, “A model for scale up of family health innovations in low-income settings: a mixed methods study,” that proposes a framework to scale up successful maternal and newborn health interventions in order to “reach more communities and improve the health of many more people.” They write, “That framework, called AIDED (Assess/Innovate/Develop/Engage/Devolve), will help us get to the next level in terms of spreading the proven health care solutions to communities that desperately need them” (8/30).
