Use of Routine Data for Economic Evaluations
Please join Data for Impact (D4I) on October 29 at 9am EDT for the first webinar in a series sharing lessons learned and practical suggestions on using routine and other existing data for evaluation and research. This month’s one-hour webinar will focus on using routine data for economic evaluations and will be led by Anna Krivelyova, ICF.
Information on costs is critical for making fully informed decisions for allocating investments and scaling and sustaining programs and interventions to maximize impact. However, comprehensive cost data is rarely captured as part of routine data systems and often must be pieced together using multiple sources of information. In this webinar, the presenter will discuss common sources of routine data for costing and economic evaluation and examine challenges and practical approaches in its use.
Anna Krivelyova, MA, is a principal economist at ICF. She leads cost analysis and economic evaluations of health programs and interventions in areas such as HIV, antimicrobial resistance, laboratory strengthening, vector control, and mental health.
