Text version of National Breastfeeding Helpline Evaluation Program Logic

The program logic map provides the broader context for the Breastfeeding Helpline, identifying community need, and responding to agreed national priorities that focus on the protection, promotion, support and valuing of breastfeeding by the whole community. The program logic includes the different roles played by the Commonwealth Government and the ABA in the development, funding and delivery of the Breastfeeding Helpline service.

The program logic map identifies the desired outcomes (high level), outputs and outcomes that were used in determining the effectiveness of the intervention. Similarly, articulation of the inputs and outputs guided assessment of the efficiency of the Breastfeeding Helpline.
