During 2007/2008, several development partners commissioned an independent technical review of 13 costing tools that were designed to support costing and budgeting of health sector plans. A Steering Committee was formed to oversee the technical review. The focus was on costing tools linked to the diseases or conditions addressed by the Millennium Development Goals, i.e., the health MDGs. The main aim of the review was to provide a description of the questions each tool can help countries answer as well as an assessment of technical validity and user-friendliness.
This package contains the final reports of the independent technical "Review of Costing Tools Relevant to the Health MDGs" conducted by Bitran y Asociados and PATH.
