Guidelines and Reference Case
This project, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, involves developing guidelines for rigorous benefit‐cost analyses. These guidelines will provide a reference case to promote comparability across analyses, and include principles, methodological specifications, and reporting standards.
Stephen Resch and Lisa Robinson, during a residency at the Global Health Education and Learning Incubator, discuss the construction of a new module on the theoretical foundations of benefit-cost analysis - part of an intermediate-level course on the theory, methods, and applications of economic evaluation.
