EDC’s projects are informed by our expertise in dissemination and implementation science, as well as by the experiences and wisdom of program staff and community members. We are skilled in identifying, addressing, and overcoming barriers to implementation that impede uptake, delivery, and dissemination of best practices.
In countries around the world, we have successfully implemented youth development, literacy, and health initiatives and worked with Ministries of Education and Health to improve school and health programming. In the United States, we support the implementation of evidence-based strategies, both nationally and regionally. We also work with large school districts and health systems on efforts to adopt and sustain effective interventions.
Our collaborative implementation efforts support meaningful improvements in processes and systems.
