C-Project - Cost-effectiveness of Treatment

E. Rogers et al.

In 2014 Action Against Hunger and the innocent foundation launched a study to explore whether Community Health Workers (CHW) could successfully diagnose and treat SAM in the community at the household level. The study found that the delivery of treatment by CHWs is a cost-effective intervention; a major benefit of this strategy was the lower cost incurred by the beneficiary household when treatment is available in the community.
