re-aimRE-AIM is an acronym that consists of five elements, or dimensions, that relate to health behavior interventions:

  • Reach the target population
  • Efficacy or effectiveness
  • Adoption by target settings or institution
  • Implementation - consistency of delivery of intervention
  • Maintenance of intervention effects in individuals and populations over time.

RE-AIM is a systematic way for researchers, practitioners, and policy decision makers to evaluate health behavior interventions. Ultimately, it can be used to estimate the potential impact of interventions on public health.

RE-AIM tools are being used by the Active for Life community grantees in the implementation of their programs.
