Full TitleEconomic evaluation of multisectoral interventions to improve nutrition and health
Session OverviewThis session will build participants' understanding of the economic evaluation methods used to measure the costs, cost-effectiveness, and benefit/cost levels of projects and programs, using a novel framework to apply those techniques to multisectoral interventions for nutrition and health. Participants will gain hands-on experience with recent studies from Africa and Asia, and assess how well current economic evaluation approaches capture the full range of costs and benefits of complex nutrition-sensitive and other nutrition-related interventions.
Learning Objectives/Outcomes1. Summarize the main economic evaluation methods used for measuring costs and benefits of multisectoral and nutrition-sensitive projects, programs or other interventions
