Evaluating community development initiatives in health promotion

Evaluating community development initiatives in health promotion

(p.123) Chapter 9 Evaluating community development initiatives in health promotion
Evaluating Health Promotion

Rachel Jewkes

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the evaluation of community development initiatives. Community development initiatives are characterized by multifaceted interventions, seeking participation, and joint working in the project as a whole as well as in the constituent activities. Evaluation of these projects must also be multifaceted and tailored to each part of the broader initiative. Evaluations should include the impact of participation on major actors in the stakeholder group, and should be undertaken with references to five questions: Who participates? What is the nature of that participation? Whose agenda dominates? How does participation impact in participants from all sectors? How does the participatory process impact on non-participants in the community?

Keywords:   health promotion evaluation, community development, health services, broader initiative
