Summary

The North Star Foundation brings together partners with a shared strategic interest in combating HIV/AIDS in truck drivers. It has identified a successful model for roadside health clinics which, to be effective, needs to be applied on a country-wide scale, due to the mobile nature of trucking. This case examines challenges and best practices in scaling up innovative ideas.

Teaching objectives

The case study will highlight the main issues to be considered when scaling up a pilot project in the humanitarian sector. A particular emphasis will be given to logistics management, disease modelling, public-private partnerships, organizational growth, diffusion of innovation and the ethical issues posed by the model.
