To achieve sustainable effects of health promotion interventions, first of all, long-term implementation is needed. However, there are just a few studies that explore how to maintain health-promoting structures and activities after external funding comes to an end. Using a mixed-methods approach, the evaluation study of the Bielefeld University analysed long-term implementation of government-funded projects. Our results show that maintenance of project structures and activities is a multiplex and contextual process. Apart from conceptual factors that can be influenced by project activities, interviewees reported on contextual factors (e. g., political support) that particularly affect successful long-term implementation. Thus, strategies need to be planned and initiated in the early stages of a project.
