This chapter is a focused narrative review that describes dissemination and implementation (D&I) efforts among vulnerable populations in key areas of prevention, and proposes future directions for moving the field forward. It begins with a discussion of models that can be used to conceptualize and guide the process of D&I efforts in racially/ethnically diverse contexts such as the United States. It then goes on to discuss challenges specific to D&I in underserved groups, summarizes the literature in six prevention areas (physical activity/obesity, nutrition, tobacco, cancer screening, HIV/STIs, immunizations), and presents a successful case study of D&I in ethnic minority and underserved populations.

Keywords: D&I research; dissemination and implementation; prevention; ethnic minority; underserved populations
