Evaluating public health interventions in complex systems: challenges and future directions

22 Feb 2017

There is increasing recognition that randomised trials and natural experiments of public health interventions do not tell us, in binary terms, whether or not an intervention “works”. Rather, effect sizes provide us with an estimate of the balance of benefit vs harm following the introduction of an intervention in a particular time and place. An understanding of mechanisms and context is then vital to make sense of the extent to which evaluation effects may translate to a new context.
