Quotes from Circle of Health users:
The Circle of Health is "particularly useful when trying to determine what approaches and target groups are important in a project. I think it could equally be applied to policy development processes."
“It is a helpful tool in strategic planning in health promotion. It can be used in a variety of settings and is easy to understand and follow. The tool assists in identifying gaps in health promotion initiatives and program planning. It utilizes common health promotion language such as the determinants of health but each determinant is defined clearly so that other professions could utilize the framework.”
“It serves as an excellent blueprint for the development of comprehensive programs.”
