Welcome to!

Dr. Karla Galaviz, a postdoctoral fellow in the Global Diabetes Research Center at Emory University, recently provided a talk about her experience applying the RE-AIM framework for an Implementation-Effectiveness evaluation of physical activity counseling within the healthcare system in Jalisco, Mexico.

Until next time,
Samantha Harden and the RE-AIM Workgroup



This site provides an explanation of and resources for those wanting to apply the RE-AIM framework. The RE-AIM framework is designed to enhance the quality, speed, and public health impact of efforts to translate research into practice in five steps:

  • Reach your intended target population
  • Efficacy or effectiveness
  • Adoption by target staff, settings, or institutions
  • Implementation consistency, costs and adaptations made during delivery
  • Maintenance of intervention effects in individuals and settings over time


The Key Features of RE-AIM website are:

  • Tools and resources to facilitate implementation
  • A comprehensive list of RE-AIM publications and presentations organized alphabetically by year

Please send comments and suggestions or your own RE-AIM related work for inclusion on the site to Samantha Harden.
