“The question now is not whether school health programs are necessary... but how they can be implemented at meaning scale. This is the challenge that we now face,” (Bundy, 2011, p. xiv). This quote reflects a key issue in the field of school health and WASH in Schools (WinS), especially in countries where resources are limited compared to the challenges in this field. Often good practices can be established but they remain limited in terms of impact if they can - not be sustained and implemented on scale by existing government structures. Therefore, scale-up is recently high on the agenda of development partners that support Ministries of Education (MoEs) to strengthen capacities for the implementation of simple, scalable and sustainable WinS and school health programs that are integrated in existing government systems. It has now become a precondition to consider scale-up at the very beginning of a program.
