Community engagement and accountability
Cost-effectiveness analysis

Cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) is an economic analysis that compares the relative costs and outcomes (effects) of different actions. Cost-effectiveness analysis may be considered to be distinct from cost–benefit analysis (CBA), which assigns a monetary value to the measure of effect. Cost-effectiveness analysis is often used in the field of health services, if for example considered inappropriate or difficult to monetise health effect. Typically the CEA is expressed in terms of a ratio where the denominator is a gain in health from a measure (years of life, premature births averted, sight-years gained) and the numerator is the cost associated with the health gain. Two commonly used outcome measures are quality-adjusted life years (QALY) and disability-adjusted life years (DALY).
