Partnering with various priority populations to achieve TSET Healthy Living Program outcomes can present unique challenges, but also tremendous opportunities. A new report synthesizes grantee insights on how to intentionally engage partners for a greater public health impact.
At TSET’s request, ChangeLab Solutions convened a cohort of grantees in December 2018 to examine the challenges and successes that TSET HLP grantees had experienced in working with priority populations.
The cohort also informed the development of a structured peer learning approach to address the issue, and provided insight on how grantees define and understand priority populations.
The document provides key takeaways, including:
- Grantees working on city government or community institution outcomes said working with a champion and building that relationship were critical to success. However …
- Grantees working on school outcomes have experienced success due to the group that HLP implementation would serve: children. In addition …
- Grantees also shared factors that contribute to successful implementation across sectors.
Key findings and recommendations resulting from the facilitated discussions are organized into four main topic areas: experience of HLP implementation; understanding priority populations; ways to strengthen HLP implementation; and ideas for cohort development. The executive summary can be found here.
