This paper describes an organising framework for evaluating comprehensive and complex intervention programs that incorporate a complicated mix of educational, environmental and policy interventions targeting risk factors in a population. The framework includes the measurement and monitoring of each of the intervention components (education, environment and policy), assessment of short-term program impact (such as change in health literacy, implementation of public policy) and assessment of the longer term outcomes (reduced behavioural, social and environmental risk).
