Program Planning and Evaluation

The essential elements of program planning and evaluation are the same for any size of public health intervention or program.

  • Health data can be used to present community health issues in a clear, quantifiable way to help gain support within an organization or to obtain external funding for a new program.
  • Logic models outline inputs and outputs of program elements and the expected outcomes. 
  • Evaluation methods can be helpful at multiple stages of a program, either to justify iterative changes or measure program impact

Planning and evaluation tools are available to public health practitioners to help make the case for resource allocation, execute a program effectively, and communicate outcomes.
