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.
CDC’s Program Performance and Evaluation Office (PPEO) 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.
