Cost Modeling and Data Dashboards: Key Tools for Effective Scale-up

*Recommended Audience: Young Professionals/Graduate Students and Mid-Level Professionals

Reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for health requires countries to effectively scale up multiple high impact interventions. Two critical tools for this work are cost modeling to help identify and adjust key cost drivers; and construction and use of data dashboards to facilitate agile decision-making among key stakeholders. This skill building session will review key principles for doing work on cost modeling and data dashboard construction and use. Participants will be introduced to flexible tools to tackle these issues, review data based on real world examples, and engage in exercises that manipulate the data in order to gain insights from scenario analyses.
