Using examples from the field of physical activity and health, this chapter illustrates: designing for the dissemination of population-based environmental and policy approaches; and designing for the dissemination of broad-reach programs for groups with significant health disparities—adults living with chronic disease. These two approaches are complementary, reflecting Geoffrey Rose's perspective on the strategy of preventive medicine: that overall health is improved by both population-wide and high-risk approaches. While the examples in the chapter focus mainly on physical activity, the principles may be applied to other health behaviors, and to other topics in public health.
