Abstract

Compared with traditional approaches such as cost-effectiveness, cost–utility, and cost–benefit analyses, the social return on investment methodology has the unique capacity to account for the broader social value and value for money of interventions while capturing perspectives of multiple stakeholders and relating this to the cost of implementing the intervention in a singular ratio. This case study describes the comprehensive assessment of and assesses the social impact and value for money of an emergency obstetric care training intervention for health care providers implemented in Kenya. Critical insights are shared into the practicalities of using the methodology within the maternal and newborn health area. Insights will be relevant to any other researcher who is keen to apply the methodology in any area of health.
