Capability Approach: evaluating public health interventions


The Capability Approach: developing an instrument for evaluating public health interventions

There is a growing interest in the application of Sen’s capability approach to the evaluation of health care programmes, including public health interventions. This project sought to develop a questionnaire to measure outcomes within the capabilities framework, for use in the evaluation of public health and social interventions.
