Scaling up population health interventions from decision to sustainability–a window of opportunity? A qualitative view from policymakers

There is a lot of evidence for effective preventive health interventions but not a lot of information about scaling up interventions to reach larger populations. Frameworks and methods for scale-up have been developed but, in practice, scale-up is highly dependent on the circumstances. In this study, the authors interviewed key Australian policy-makers, practitioners and researchers about their experiences with real-world scaled-up case studies. They examine how scale-up decisions were made and what made scale-ups successful, including in the long-term.
