CHDS faculty James Hammitt and Lisa Robinson participated on May 11, 2017 as project leaders in a workshop to discuss the scope of the benefit-cost analysis guidelines. Topics relevant to BCA guidelines included current practices, barriers to its conduct, and key challenges to be addressed. This scoping workshop – open to the public – was a core component of a project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which involves developing guidelines to encourage the conduct of high quality benefit‐cost analyses. Both Hammitt and Robinson serve on the leadership team, along with Dean Jamison, Professor Emeritus of Global Health at the University of California, San Francisco and David de Ferranti, Founder and Chair of the Board for Results for Development Institute (R4D).
