SUAREZ ALVAREZ, Óscar et al. Tools to assess the impact on health of public health programmes and community interventions from an equity perspective. Gac Sanit [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.6, pp.579-581.  Epub Dec 07, 2020. ISSN 0213-9111.

It is essential to develop a comprehensive approach to institutionally promoted interventions to assess their impact on health from the perspective of the social determinants of health and equity. Simple, adapted tools must be developed to carry out these assessments. The aim of this paper is to present two tools to assess the impact of programmes and community-based interventions on the social determinants of health. The first tool is intended to assess health programmes through interviews and analysis of information provided by the assessment team. The second tool, by means of online assessments of community-based interventions, also enables a report on inequality issues that includes recommendations for improvement. In addition to reducing health-related social inequities, the implementation of these tools can also help to improve the efficiency of public health interventions.

Keywords : Health impact assessment; Social determinants of health; Public policy; Equity.
