Health promotion evaluation : recommendations to policy-makers : report of the WHO European Working Group on Health Promotion Evaluation
AbstractIn June 1995, the WHO Regional Ofice for Europe established a Working Group on Health Promotion Evaluation in cooperation with three government agencies : the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, United States; Health Canada; Health Education Authority, United Kingdom. The Working Group had three objectives : to provide guidance to policy-makers and practitioners to foster the use of appropriate methods for health promotion evaluation; to examine the current range of evaluation methods, both quantitative and qualitative; and to provide guidance to policy-makers and practitioners to increase the quality of health promotion evaluations. To achieve its objectives, the Working Group commissioned and reviewed more than 30 background papers dealing with key issues related to the evaluation of health promotion initiatives; produced resource documents to guide the planning and implementation of health promotion evaluations by evaluators, policy-makers and practitioners; and sought and incorporated the views of health promotion policy-makers, practitioners and evaluators in developing its report and publications. The present report , which is a summary of the work carried out by the Working Group from June 1995 to March 1998, provides guidance to policy-makers and other decision-makers who can influence resources for planning, implementing and evaluating health promotion initiatives. The conclusions and recommendations are summarized in Table 1
