ABSTRACT
The authors offer their insights on two macro-evaluation public health studies including the Oportunidades welfare program in Mexico, and the urban transportation and environment modeling study. It asserts that most evaluations of public health programs can reportedly be categorized as experimental, observational, and modeled. In the Mexican welfare program, the authors affirm that high-quality social interventions can be implemented on a massive scale with support from the highest levels of government leadership.
