Integrated Reproductive, Maternal and Newborn Health (IRMNH) – VFM Benchmarking and CEA

Sierra Leone

The Project

The IRMNH program is a five-year programme which supported the use of a nationwide comprehensive package of reproductive, maternal and newborn health care services across Sierra Leone. The programme is innovative in that it brings together major implementing partners in the health sector to support the Ministry of Health and Sanitation under one umbrella programme.

LAMP conducted a regional Value for Money Benchmarking Study and Cost Effectiveness Analysis of the IRMNH program. The VfM benchmarking was a desk-based review of the value for money performance indicators of the program together with other similar programmes in Sierra Leone and the West African region using available programme documents. Also, using the Spectrum Policy Modelling System Software and programme data made available, the Cost Effectiveness Analysis of the program was conducted to estimate the potential impact of the IRMNH intervention.

The results of the studies provided programme implementers with information that can be used for accountability and advocacy purposes. In addition, it provided a better understanding of the IRMNH programme’s impact and information to inform future design.

Highlights

  • Estimated cost per DALY averted was lower than at the end of the programme compared to the original estimate in the business case
  • Conducted benchmarking exercise of 12 health programmes across more than 6 countries in Africa

Client Testimonial

We worked with LAMP for an evaluation of an adolescent suicide prevention project in Kazakhstan. LAMP were very professional in defining the scope of the cost-effectiveness stream of work, in dealing with the client, and in delivering within a quick time-frame when the data did finally arrive! We would work with them again.
