Implementing the Social Network Diffusion Package: Costing Exercise Report
Tékponon Jikuagou is a USAID-funded six-year project that aims to reduce unmet need for family planning in Benin through social network interventions.
The project is comprised of multiple, interlinked components, including a community social network mapping exercise, guided discussions with influential groups and people identified from mapping, radio programs that rebroadcast group discussions, and activities to link family planning clients to service providers. It was crafted with expansion in mind, and as such was designed from the beginning to be implemented with the resources likely to be available during routine project implementation, as well as simple enough and reasonably-price so that new user organizations could easily integrate the package into their programs (its scalability).
The costing exercise was designed to provide critical information to potential user organizations as they consider how to scale up the Tékponon Jikuagou package, or integrate components into existing activities.
The exercise had four main objectives:
- Estimate the cost of introducing the Tékponon Jikuagou intervention as a stand-alone package in other parts of Benin.
- Provide information on the cost of introducing and implementing individual components of the Tékponon Jikuagou intervention package.
- Provide information and insights on the cost of scaling the Tékponon Jikuagou package.
- Contribute to the body of knowledge on costing community-based interventions for social norms transformation.
