Do you want to know how much it costs to deliver your health services? Join us April 16 at 9am EDT for a one-hour webinar on the MEASURE Evaluation Reproductive Health Cost Reporting System.

Program managers, finance directors, and funders often want to know the cost of delivering services. To answer this, programs often undertake or commission cost studies. Such studies take time, can be expensive, and provide one-off information. Yet, the basic information to estimate service delivery costs most often are available to an organization in real time, housed in its tracking systems and service delivery records for human resources, procurement, and asset management. MEASURE Evaluation, with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), has developed a web-based tool, the Reproductive Health Cost Reporting System (RHCRS), that can be configured for any health program. The system can estimate costs for each of the services a program offers, by service delivery point and with the individual cost elements. The RHCRS can be a valuable management tool for health service delivery.

This webinar will provide an overview of the tool’s purpose and how the system works, who it is intended for, and a demonstration on how to use the online system.
