MAGALHAES, Rosana. Implementation of multi-strategy programs: a proposal for an evaluation matrix. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2014, vol.19, n.7, pp.2115-2123. ISSN 1413-8123.

The programs that seek to achieve comprehensive changes involve the relationship between different public policies, understanding the diversity of social demands in each context and enhancing a participative dynamic. Due to the complexity of these experiences, it is important to review the traditional perspectives and discuss alternatives. Based on the analytical framework of the so-called theory-driven evaluation, the core focus of which is the analysis of the validity of the concepts that link processes and results and the exploratory case study of the qualitative character of the federal Bolsa Familia cash transfer program, the paper proposes a methodological matrix as its main result to support the evaluation of interventions related to health promotion, food security and poverty reduction.
