The Business Case for Social and Behavior Change for Malaria with Applications for Côte d’Ivoire and Tanzania

Social and behavior change (SBC) interventions like mass media, interpersonal communication, and community engagement play a critical role in improving health outcomes. Yet gaps in information on the costs and impacts of SBC interventions mean an incomplete picture of the value of SBC interventions, their contributions to social and health outcomes, and potential cost savings from implementing SBC programming for malaria.

This document summarizes research to address these gaps, including a synthesis of SBC effectiveness and cost literature and cost-effectiveness modeling applications for Tanzania and Côte d’Ivoire.
