HIP Briefs

HIP collaborating partners have developed briefs that synthesize the evidence and provide recommendations on how to implement selected HIPs. Briefs are grouped into three interrelated categories: (1) high-impact practices in service delivery (briefs with a blue colored side bar), (2) social and behavior change interventions (briefs with a green colored side bar), and (3) creating an enabling environment (briefs with red colored side bar).
