In recent years, calls for the scaling-up, or more broad dissemination of evidence-based HIV prevention programmes, have increased. This paper responds to the call for increasing applicable knowledge about programme dissemination by reviewing the history of a major evidence-based human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention and mental health promotion programme that has been adapted successfully and pilot-tested across four settings, including two major cities, as well as in the United States an South Africa to date. This programme entitled, CHAMP is distinctive primarily for its emphasis on community collaboration and power-sharing, and also its incorporation of individual, family and community-level interventions, The history of programme development, including theoretical foundations and results across sites, is discussed with a particular emphasis on the implications of CHAMP's dissemination thus far.
