What Difference is Your Organization Making? The Program Logic Model

When it comes down to it, a program logic model is a simplified picture of how a program, initiative or intervention intends to achieve desired outcomes. Logic models are the first step to answering the question, “what difference is this program making?”.  Serving a range of functions, including program planning, program management, evaluation, and communications, logic models should be drafted for all community-based HIV/AIDS programs. Logic models are becoming increasingly important, not only for evaluation, but also for funders. Creating logic models that are clear and succinct can become an important tool for community-based organizations to talk about their program, as well as articulate outcomes.
