The Breakthrough RESEARCH Business Case modeled social and behavior change (SBC) cost-effectiveness in Niger utilizing two investment scenarios to assess the impact of SBC programming on modern contraceptive use: The national plan scenario was based on planned investments documented "Family Planning in Niger: 2012–2020 Action Plan" and "2018 Operational Plan," with the national plan indicating a cumulative five-year investment of approximately $5.5 million dollars in SBC for FP, and a double investment scenario examined the effects of doubling Niger's national plan total investment to $11.1 million with the increased investments targeting community awareness activities and group interpersonal communication (IPC) for youth, focused largely on peer education.
