Abstract

The improvement of health and well-being and the reduction of inequalities are currently high on policy and discourse agendas nationally and internationally. This is manifest for example in the UK government vision to "improve the health of the poorest, fastest", through key policies such as Healthy Lives, Healthy People (Department of Health 2010a:64). Flowing from such aspirations and policies are a wide range of initiatives aiming to improve health and well-being and reduce inequalities. associated with these is an increased need for evidence that these activities are successful, and the view that evaluation is an essential and integral element of working for health and well-being (Ovretveit 2003).
