Scaling-up a Program

In many cases, when a peer support program has been proven to be effective, its host organization or health system will then choose to expand the program through extending the scope of work of peer supporters or increasing number of sites or participants for the program. Below are two sets of spotlights that share experience and lessons learned on organization-wide adoption and scaling up within a health system.

 

  • A 3-part blog series on the MoPo Tsyo Patient Information Centre in Cambodia by Maurits van Pelt provides a roadmap for scaling up peer educator networks for people with diabetes and developing sustainability for what was then still an intervention organized and facilitated by a Cambodian NGO. Blog 1, Blog 2, and Blog 3.
  • A spotlight by Peers for Progress on Pakistan’s Lady Health Workers shares lessons learned from a successful phased scale-up with clear policy planning and health system integration.
