Cost of the Intervention or Program
The cost of intervention is a measure of the value of all resources used in the intervention. The cost of intervention is an important part of the decision to use one intervention over another. Knowing about the costs provides clues as to whether there is too much spending on less desirable programs or too little spending on highly desirable programs.
The cost of intervention can be used:
  • by both internal and external reviewers as a tool to monitor the level of performance of programs, and
  • for manifold purposes, as described in the previous chapter.
An estimation of the cost of intervention is conducted by framing the cost analysis, developing a cost inventory, evaluating resource use, and calculating cost analysis results.
