CDC’s Evaluation Efforts
Program evaluation is an essential organizational practice in public health. At CDC, program evaluation supports our agency priorities. When programs conduct strong, practical evaluations on a routine basis, the findings are better positioned to inform their management and improve program effectiveness.
Within CDC’s Office of the Associate Director for Program, the Program Evaluation Unit sets standards and expectations for agency-wide evaluation; delivers tools, technical assistance and resources to enhance evaluation efforts; and provides support for evaluation capacity-building across CDC programs.
CDC’s Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health has provided a set of steps and standards for practical evaluation by programs and partners. While the focus is public health programs, the approach can be generalized to any evaluation effort.
CDC seeks applicants for the 2013-14 class of the CDC Evaluation Fellowship Program. Fellows will work under the leadership of CDC’s Chief Evaluation Officer. Fellows will be assigned to specific CDC host programs, developing and implementing program evaluations and studies for/with those programs. Details about the Fellowship, stipends, qualifications, deadlines, and how to apply are available here.
