Is Sustainability Possible?

September 1, 2005

This article reviews the sustainability of 19 health-related programs.  Measures of sustainability included: continued program activities, continued measured benefits, and maintained community capacity.  Five factors were found to influence the extent of sustainability: a program can be modified over time, a champion is present, the program fits with its organization's missions and procedures, benefits to staff members are and/or clients are readily perceived, and stakeholders in other organizations provide support.
