Module 5: 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 outcomes. Evaluation can also be used to determine what is or is not
working, 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.
