Lessons from the field: case studies in global implementation science

CGHS in collaboration with partner NIH Institutes and Centers and key external partner organizations has developed a collection of global implementation science case studies. CGHS created this cohesive collection to specifically include case studies relating to global health and LMICs that span different countries and disease areas.

The specific aims of this collection are to: (1) demonstrate the rigorous application of implementation science in the context of global health; (2) highlight the use and adaptation of frameworks, implementation strategies, research designs, and measures for LMIC settings; and (3) assess the utility and impact of implementation science in these settings.

The collection also highlights the utility of case studies as a dissemination strategy and the value of detailed case studies as a teaching tool for implementation science researchers, as well as reinforces the need for “thick" (i.e., context rich) descriptions of implementation studies. The project is guided by a steering committee chaired by Dr. Rohit Ramaswamy at the University of North Carolina and made up of 14 implementation science experts with broad expertise.
