This brief aims to broadly summarize existing information on the costs and cost-effectiveness of community-delivered reproductive, maternal, neonatal, and child health interventions, including large-scale community health worker programs, to provide health decision-makers and planners with a baseline understanding of the types of costs associated with providing these services. To support efforts to advocate for and secure appropriate levels of funding for community health programming, tools and cost benchmarks referenced in this brief can help country-level planners identify what costs must be considered while deciding which community-level services are appropriate for a given context.
