This briefing note presents a kind of logic model which can be a helpful tool for reflecting on the effectiveness of healthy public policies.

This document outlines the process for constructing a logic model as proposed in the NCCHPP’s method for synthesizing knowledge about public policies. It also shows the use of this type of logic model in applications other than knowledge synthesis, as a tool that public health actors can use to analyze public policies.

In the document, we attempt to answer three questions:

• What is a logic model for a healthy public policy?
• Why construct a logic model for a healthy public policy?
• How does one construct a logic model?
