This paper included a literature review and four case studies (including A&T work in Bangladesh) on large-scale nutrition programs with proven impact. Elements that emerged from the review include having a clear vision or goal for impact, presence of an enabling organizational context for scaling up, utilizing contextually relevant strategies, establishing drivers such as catalysts, champions, ownership, and incentives, and incorporating mechanisms for monitoring, learning, and accountability.
