This article discusses creation of common evaluation frameworks for FASD-related programs. The project was guided by a social determinants of health perspective and included a literature search and consultations across Canada to help refine and confirm the final product. T e end result was development of three visual maps: FASD prevention programs, FASD support programs, and FASD programs in Aboriginal communities. Each map comprises concentric rings showing theoretical foundations; activities and approaches; and formative (program), participant, and community/systemic outcomes. The project website provides tools and indicators. The visual maps have wide-ranging applications that go beyond evaluation of FASD programs.
