Field of Expertise:
Health Economics and Financing; Value for money (Cost-effectiveness, cost-benefits, VfM, efficiency, impact, equity,?); Value for money (Cost-effectiveness, cost-benefits, VfM, efficiency, impact, equity,?)
Narrative description of project:
Since mid-2010, the Essential Package of Health Services (EPHS) has been implemented in three Somali regions by a consortium of partners (Health Consortium for the Somali People, HCS) supporting the Ministries of Health (MOHs) with funding from the UK Department for International Development (DFID). As the EPHS is implemented and potentially expands in both scale and scope, understanding the actual costs of EPHS service delivery is significant for achieving cost-efficiency in terms of current activities as well as for attaining cost-effectiveness if carried out on a larger scale.
