This training helps you assure key aspects of promising approaches are put into practice as intended and to meet local needs. Implementing effective interventions often requires adapting interventions to different or changing conditions, especially when programs or policies are applied in different populations, places, and situations. The process of implementing effective interventions can help you combine understanding of what has worked elsewhere with local conditions and opportunities to improve outcomes for a “real-world” impact.

Implementing effective interventions is a key process to help communities target and change community conditions for behavioral and population-level improvements.
