Taking into account the limited resources typically available to Promotor(a) de Salud programs (also known as Community Health Worker programs), this Evaluation Toolkit was developed to help you determine what evaluation strategies will work for your organization. This is not a long, detailed description of all the evaluation options and strategies available. Rather, this is a quick reference guide with tips and tools that have been designed especially for use with Promotor(a), or other Community Health Worker (CHW), programs.
This Toolkit is recommended for Health Centers, health departments, migrant health programs, Primary Care Associations, and other organizations that implement Promotor(a) or CHW programs. It is designed for those with little or no evaluation experience or limited evaluation resources. The information in this Toolkit will help you design an evaluation system from the very beginning of the process, however it also includes tips for improving existing evaluation efforts. It is intended for use by anyone that is in charge of a Promotor(a) program, including Program Coordinators, Directors, Supervisors, or Managers.
In this 69-page manual, we will cover the following sections:
- Section 1: Needs Assessment & Asset Mapping
- Section 2: Goals, Objectives, and Action Steps
- Section 3: Data Collection
- Section 4: Data Analysis
- Section 5: Sharing Data
Many of the tools at the end of this Toolkit in the Appendix have been created and used by MHP Salud’s own Promotor(a) program staff. Like the rest of the Toolkit, these forms are meant to serve as a template and can be adapted to best suit your program’s needs.
