Module 6: Measuring Program Impact

Most community health worker (CHW) programs are collecting some qualitative and/or quantitative data that can be used for evaluation purposes.

Even with limited data, it may be possible to evaluate the following:

  • Achievement of program objectives
  • Potential for program sustainability
  • Effects of the CHW program on outcomes such as healthcare access and quality

For a detailed overview of program evaluation, see Evaluating Rural Programs in the Rural Community Health Toolkit.
