Often, efforts to scale up health programs focus more on expanding activities than on institutionalizing new practices. Adopting new practices in health on a large scale requires systematic approaches to planning, implementation, and follow-up. Any scale-up approach must address the policy and health system dimensions of scaling up, including national and decentralized-level policies. Operational policies and systems, which serve as the rules and guidelines that governments use to translate national laws into programs and services, must also be factored into scale-up initiatives.

For the Gender, Policy, and Measurement program, the Health Policy Project works in collaboration with other partners, including ministries of health and other line ministries, nongovernmental organizations, donors and multilaterals, to ensure that policy and system issues related to health programs are addressed from the very beginning and that strong policies and systems are developed and implemented to foster effective scale-up of health programs.
