Program monitoring and evaluation are cornerstones of CDC's Healthy Communities Program to help ensure that resources are used wisely, goals and objectives are reached, and program improvements are made where needed. Monitoring is the process of collecting information to describe a program, answering questions such as What? How much? How many? Evaluation, through in-depth analysis and comparisons, uses information gained through program monitoring to identify strategies for improving the program. Evaluation addresses questions such as Was the program effective? Did the program achieve its intended outcomes? Is one program strategy more effective than another?
