Evaluation is an essential part of evidence-based programs and policies. It can 1) allow for midcourse corrections and changes, 2) help determine if the program or policy has been effective, and 3) provide information for planning the next program or policy. This chapter reviews some of the key issues to consider in conducting an evaluation and provides linkages to a diverse literature (within and outside public health) for those wishing to go beyond these basics.
