Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health

 (1999). Milstein, R. & Wettterhall, S., Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Publication of this framework also emphasizes Centre for Disease Control's continuing commitment to improving overall community health. Because categorical strategies cannot succeed in isolation, public health professionals working across program areas must collaborate in evaluating their combined influence on health in the community. Only then will we be able to realize and demonstrate the success of our vision -- healthy people in a healthy world through prevention.
