While health inequities are well documented, and there are helpful frameworks to understand health disparities, implementation frameworks are also needed to focus the design, evaluation and reporting on interventions targeting populations at increased risk.


Describe how the RE-AIM framework (Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation, and Maintenance) can be used for these purposes and illustrate its application in the context of a randomized, pragmatic weight-loss and hypertension self-management intervention.
