We have learned how program evaluation is a fundamental component of CHWPs.
Evaluating your CHWP can improve its effectiveness, build capacity, and advance population health. When CHWPs like yours use similar measures to evaluate their programs, comparisons can be made to learn about the comparative effectiveness of CHWPs. This can have major implications for improving children’s health as programs can learn from one another and determine which interventions work best, when, and why. While the capacity of CHWPs may vary, guidance on the selection of a core set of reliable and feasible measures will allow all CHWPs to evaluate the effectiveness of their programs. Whether you are just getting started or have been evaluating your program for years, we hope this toolkit provides you with the capacity to conduct meaningful program evaluation.
