How We Did It
Use Lean Materials and Strategies: Design with the end in mind by creating materials that can be used with minimal orientation and coaching.
Create Clear Documentation: Careful process documentation supports fidelity to pilot goals. Develop how-to guides that systematize staff orientation to core concepts, explain how to adapt intervention for new contexts, provide step-by-step implementation guidance, and include approaches to monitor fidelity, quality, and adherence to values.
Integrate into Other Institutional Efforts: Collaboration and capacity building helped integrate GREAT activities into other institutional efforts.
Be attentive to External Factors Affecting Scale-up: External factors such as environmental and financial components can impede successful scale up.
Leverage Global Resources: Strategic communication and dissemination of GREAT materials leveraged global resources on adolescent sexual and reproductive health, gender based violence and gender equality.
