Strategies are needed to ensure widespread dissemination of effective public health interventions. In this seminar, the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention describes its approach to disseminating effective programs through a system of training centers and supplementary resources. A set of discussants will then address the feasibility of using a similar strategy for chronic disease interventions.
