      The HoPE-LVB Project project applied the ExpandNet/World Health Organization (WHO) systematic scaling-up approach of Beginning with the End in Mind to ensure successful institutionalization and expansion of the project. This brief provides lessons to implementers and donors on how institutionalization emerged as a critical pathway towards scale-up and sustainability of integrated programming.

        The Health of People and the Environment in the Lake Victoria Basin (HoPE-LVB) project is one of the largest and most scaled up integrated Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) programs implemented in the East African region. As such, the HoPE-LVB toolkit has been developed using the lessons learned and best practices from the project in the hope that this PHE approach to sustainable development will be adopted on a wider scale not only in East Africa but in other areas of the world. The toolkit is a unique collection of resources that has been developed to promote “a complete status of well-being” of individuals and families by converging activities related to the three sectors of population, health and environment.

          This case study illustrates the relationship between population, family planning, community health, and the sustainability of natural resources in the Lake Victoria Basin, the largest lake basin on the African continent. It demonstrates how these dimensions are shaped by many factors, including human-caused alteration to the lake, access to sexual and reproductive health services, and environmental degradation.

            Health of People and the Environment in the Lake Victoria Basin (HoPE-LVB) is an integrated population, health, and the environment (PHE) project in Kenya and Uganda that aims to reduce ecosystem degradation in the Lake Victoria Basin, while increasing access to essential public health services in project communities, through promotion of multisectoral collaboration. This article presents findings from an internal evaluation using secondary analysis of service statistics, a quantitative household survey, a self-administered questionnaire with health-care providers, focus group discussions with community members, and key informant interviews with community members and policy makers in the project areas.

              An overview presentation of the monitoring and evaluation approach used with the Health of People and Environment in the Lake Victoria Basin (HoPE LVB) project, implemented by Pathfinder International in Uganda and Kenya. The project aimed to increase access to sexual and reproductive health services and improve maternal and child health care practices while reducing threats to biodiversity conservation in project communities. It also aimed to scale up the PHE model at the local, national, and regional levels through institutionalizing PHE in government development planning.
