Service Delivery and Social and Behavior Change HIPs are further categorized according to the strength of the evidence base for each practice – proven or promising.
Proven: Sufficient evidence exists to recommend widespread implementation, provided that there is careful monitoring of coverage, quality, and cost.
Promising: Good evidence exists that these interventions can lead to impact; more research is needed to fully document implementation experience and impact. These interventions should be implemented widely, provided they are carried out in a research context and evaluated for both impact and process.
