This subject was previously known as Health Planning and Evaluation.
The subject covers the theoretical framework for a population’s health planning. It provides an understanding of what health planning is; the core components of the process; the types; the core health planning principles; and what factors need to be considered when undertaking health planning. While the focus of the subject is on public sector health services, it also considers the broader health system context to address social determinants of health. As an integral part of the planning process, this subject covers evaluation focusing on several key aspects of evaluation: determining what needs to be evaluated; identifying appropriate questions for the evaluation; selecting indicators; knowing when to collect data; and what data collection methods might be most appropriate. Note that the subject does not cover technical planning and evaluation aspects of measuring population’s health and analysing costs and benefits of health interventions or programs.
