This chapter examines the issues of evaluation, evidence, and learning in community-based action research (CBAR) conducted for use in policy and practice to address health inequalities. It argues that learning and evidence can take many forms in this type of intervention and summarises the challenges in evaluating community-based initiatives to improve health and wellbeing. The chapter considers the opportunities and difficulties involved in transferring evidence from CBAR to other contexts, for example for use by communities, policy makers, service providers, and practitioners in service and policy development.

Keywords:   CBAR, health inequalities, evaluation, evidence, learning, community-based initiatives, policy development
