The Child Health Cost Estimation Tool (CHCET) was part of a set of tools developed by WHO to help managers and planners to estimate the financial costs of providing priority public health interventions. The tool was used in a few countries to support costing of the national child health strategies. However since the official release of the OneHealth Tool (OHT) in May 2012 by the UN Inter Agency Working Group on Costing, the CHCET has been replaced by the child health component within the OHT.

OHT includes all the elements of the CHCET, as well as other program specific costing tools.


For information on the Child Health component within the OneHealth Tool as drawing upon the CHCET, please contact Thierry Lambrechts or Karin Stenberg, WHO (see contact information below):
