Module 4: Evaluation Tools for Rural Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Programs
Evaluation in health promotion and disease prevention programs can be used to document a program’s effectiveness
and impact by assessing quality, cost, and impact or to identify areas of improvement by gathering information
throughout program implementation to determine if program objectives are being met. Evaluation can provide a
level of transparency and accountability that encourages community support and informs policy decisions.
