An Analysis of Factors Impacting the Implementation of Effective Intervention Strategies identified and assessed the implementation of risk factor interventions currently employed by local retail food regulatory programs enrolled in the Voluntary National Retail Food Regulatory Program Standards (Retail Program Standards), with a focus on Standard 9. The study, conducted in 2021 by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Conference for Food Protection (CFP) assessed how most jurisdictions targeted risk factors interventions, identified success factors and challenges, and developed recommendations to support the implementation of targeted interventions. The qualitative research uncovered that most jurisdictions targeted risk factors based on violations most frequently cited during retail food regulatory inspections and that the risk factor most often targeted was poor personal hygiene.
