The Family Health Support Centers (Nasf) have become an object of inquiry and research. Based on a review of literature and official speech expressed in the documents of the Ministry of Health, a study of its evaluability was conducted, pointing out some assessment strategies more appropriate to the initiative. Therefore, the Nasf proposal proved to be evaluable, and the evaluation of its logic and strategy, approaching its conception and theoretical hypotheses, gains relevance in its current stage, in which the initiative is found.
