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.

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