Abstract: This paper describes the Precede-Proceed Model to guide planning, implementation and evaluation of eHealth intervention. The Precede-Proceed Model involves nine phases and is based on the premise that a thorough assessment (Precede) should be made before planning an eHealth intervention with evaluation (Proceed) built into the process to enable measurement of the effectiveness of that intervention. Primary targets for the eHealth intervention are established through ease phase of the assessment process on the basis of causal importance in the chain of eHealth determinants, their prevalence, and their changeability. The results of this assessment process guide the development of the eHealth intervention. The evaluation tracks the impact of the eHealth intervention on factors identified as important targets in the assessment process. This paper produced information that can be adapted in practice by the researchers and school staff when developing eHealth interventions and web-based learning environment for it.
