The purpose of this study was to evaluate child drowning prevention efforts implemented in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province. The CIPP model was used to evaluate four main factors, i.e. contexts, inputs, processes and products. The samples were classified into two groups of the officially certified district as “merit maker” and the uncertified district. The total sample size was 122 participants consisting of government agency administrators, operational-level staff, and community leaders. The results of CIPP model analysis were compared between a certified district and an uncertified district. The data were collected using the in-depth interview method. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and Mann-Withney U Test. The results of all four factors were at a moderate level. The statistical test confirmed that each factor among two different groups was significantly different (p<0.05). The findings suggested that top-down approach to promoting the all four factors in the CIPP model be implemented. Networking collaboration among stakeholders was also advised.
