Challenges in Program Evaluation of Health Interventions in Developing Countries
Rand Corporation, Jan 23, 2006 - Medical - 114 pages
Health interventions that are effective in developed countries may not be as effective in developing countries given the differing social, economic, cultural, and infrastructure factors that may affect a program's implementation and outcomes. This monograph is intended to promote an understanding of why program evaluation is a critical component of any health intervention and to stimulate discussion on ways to make evaluation of health interventions in developing countries more rigorous.
