Fostering a Community of Practice for Social and Behavior Change Costing

Breakthrough RESEARCH (BR) is gathering, analyzing, and sharing evidence on the costs and impact of social and behavior change (SBC) interventions to support the case that investing in SBC is crucial for improving health and advancing development.

To compliment this work, BR is building a “community of practice” around SBC costing that will enhance learning, discussion, and collaboration in the field to yield higher quality cost data in the future.

BR is also developing a set of applied briefs that elucidate additional insights on when and how to apply the costing guidelines in specific circumstances. This series of briefs is intended to complement the guidelines and support a Community of Practice around SBC costing by highlighting important issues and practices for SBC costing. In building a community of practice, BR is reaching out to networks in both the SBC and costing worlds to encourage ongoing engagement in the SBC Costing Group on the Springboard platform.

Springboard is an online community of social and behavior change (SBC) professionals who are passionate about making a difference in the world. Members seek access to experts, the latest theories and tools and the most stimulating discussions and educational opportunities, in order to advance their own knowledge and skills.
