Community Health Planning and Costing Tool

Through funding and technical contributions from the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), MSH developed the Community Health Planning and Costing Tool (CHPCT) to support the planning and costing of effective community health community health services (CHS) packages. Results from using the tool can be used to evaluate program performance, plan for future programming, and develop investment cases for introducing or expanding community health services.

CHPCT has been used in Angola, Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Togo.

Success Stories

In South Sudan, the government used the CHPCT to design implementation scenarios and mobilize resources for the country’s Boma Health Initiative (BHI), which seeks to train and deploy more than 6,000 CHWs at the Boma—or local government—level. At a dissemination meeting in February 2019 in Juba, partners pledged €1 million toward the implementation of the new BHI following the presentation of the investment case.
