Abstract

This scale-up strategy is for the rolling out of the 2-in-1 vaccine to meaningfully address the challenges of poverty and food security. All projects (in the CIFSRF portfolio) ultimately lead to enhanced food security and nutrition for men and women. Scaling up is defined as 'expanding, replicating, adapting and sustaining successful policies, programs or projects in geographic space and over time to reach a greater number of people'. It is increasingly being recognised in the international development of the need to go beyond fragmented, one-off projects. Often projects, programmes, and policies are often limited in scale, short-lived, and without lasting impact. There is now much talk on scaling up successful innovations and pilot projects with an explicit goal of achieving sustainable impact at scale. Impact at scale is achieved when large or significant proportions of potential beneficiaries or users are reached and have, in some way or another, benefited from the innovations resulting from research. Because the envisaged process of developing and manufacturing the vaccine was not completed within the time frame of the project, this document only uses information made available during the duration of the study, and is consequently not a final scale up strategy per se.
