The purpose of this guidance manual is to outline steps for estimating the cost of post-GBV services at the health-facility level. It provides the user with practical steps for conducting a costing study, including preparing for data collection, collecting and managing data, and analyzing and using the results. It provides detailed instructions on how to use the GBV Program Cost Calculator, an MS Excel-based tool developed under the Health Policy Project (HPP) that enables the use to generate unit cost estimates of providing health facility-based post-GBV interventions to a single client during one health facility visit. The cost data generated from these steps are meant to represent the cost of providing services and not on the cost to the client for seeking services. The results on the cost of post-GBV services generated from implementing these steps are to support program managers, policy makers, funding partners and government ministries to plan and scale-up GBV intervention services.
