Project Report: The Development of a Tool to Help Plan and Cost Community Health Services


MSH designed and piloted this methodology and tool in Malawi and Sierra Leone, countries that were selected given the important role that community health workers play within each of the countries' health systems. The purpose of this piloting was to test the methodology and tool in real situations with the understanding that the results could also be beneficial in improving and expanding community health services in those countries, as well as understanding the cost implications of the proposed policy changes by ministries of health.
