The Research and Learning Agenda for Advancing Integrated Social and Behavior Change (SBC) Programming, developed by Breakthrough RESEARCH through a consensus-driven process, identified the need for costing and evaluating the cost-effectiveness of integrated SBC as one of four key questions that needs addressing. This brief, developed by Avenir Health, provides an overview of the steps for examining the cost-effectiveness of integrated SBC programs that can be used for future cost-effectiveness analyses. This is the fifth in a series of programmatic research briefs intended to complement the Guidelines for Costing of Social and Behavior Change Health Interventions and support a Community of Practice around SBC costing by highlighting important issues and practices for SBC costing.
