Translational research can take many forms: bench to bedside, across cultural groups, across geographical boundaries, among others. This case study will share how we addressed all three "translational" issues using two evidence-based studies (USA, Zambia) to illustrate these "roads less traveled." Our implementation and dissemination efforts were anchored by the "train the trainer" strategy, and the Glasgow RE-AIM model provided programmatic guideposts and direction. Keeping all stakeholders (scientific, community, political) involved in the implementation and dissemination process was an essential, perhaps determining factor in the success of the translation process.
