The challenges involved in developing, introducing, and scaling global health innovations are innumerable. A bevy of activities are required, across many countries, and with many actors (donors, implementing partners, ministries of health, and manufacturers, to name a few), making coordination and efficient execution a tricky proposition. To bring added clarity to the delivery planning process—and ensure we are applying best practices to our work—USAID’s Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact (CII) developed IDEA to IMPACT: A Guide to Introduction and Scale of Global Health Innovations. This Guide, along with its companion Toolkit, identifies and illustrates priority activities to help practitioners think through, plan, and execute the many steps needed to ensure successful launch and scale from bench to bedside. The Guide provides context through examples, and offers a growing set of tools that can help users put these activities into practice. CII, along with PATH and The Aspen Institute, invite you to join us on February 2nd at the Aspen Institute in Washington, DC for a discussion of IDEA to IMPACT and how we can practically put its principles to use.
