Understanding the costs associated with social and behavior change (SBC) interventions for health is critical for budgeting, price setting, program planning, and economic analysis.

Breakthrough RESEARCH performed a literature review and analysis to identify, classify, and synthesize published costs associated with SBC programming in low- and middle-income countries. The findings from this review can assist with SBC cost comparisons, budgeting, and planning, and can increase our understanding of how SBC costs vary among interventions and contexts. While many SBC cost studies were identified, there are still several data gaps that would benefit from new, quality SBC costing research, including a lack of costing studies for SBC interventions targeting adolescents and young adults, and key populations.
