    • Will the intervention work everywhere for everyone?
    • How much will it cost to implement the intervention?
    • Is the intervention cost effective?
    • How should programs be structured or delivered to ensure effectiveness?
  • Insufficient evidence findings outline gaps in the effectiveness evidence and may include specific challenges.
