4. Evidence on cost-effectiveness

We are providing  evidence on the cost-effectiveness of bundles of direct interventions in different contextual settings and population characteristics.

To analyse the cost-effectiveness of direct interventions we will:

a) Do a primary study to identify the cost-effectiveness of different combinations of direct interventions in Bangladesh in reducing childhood stunting

Update October 2014

A study protocol has been drafted and shared for external review. Implementation is expected to start in December 2014.


b) Assess data from Alive and Thrive (Bangladesh, Ethiopia), and National Nutrition Programme (Bangladesh; modelling exercises). Transform Nutrition will support the collection of additional data required for this analysis.
