Program theory is for the DAGs!

Every public health intervention has a program theory; however, very few can actually describe the program theory supporting their primary programmatic activity or research. Can you? If not, read on. I too could not describe the program theories supporting my own work until I read Funnell Rogers’ book Purposeful Program Theory [1]. It turns out that program evaluators not only live and breath program theory, but they call it by different names: logic model, program logic, theory of change, causal model, results chain, intervention logic, etc.
