HEA and CotD Resource Hub

Welcome to the HEA and Cost of the Diet website

This website brings together resources on Household Economy Analysis (HEA) and Cost of the Diet (CotD). It serves as a one-stop shop for managers, decision makers, programme planners and practitioners who want to learn more about, use, and share about HEA or CotD.

It has been developed by Save the Children. Please use this site to share your own HEA and CotD reports.

We are keen to explore the ways that HEA and CotD can be used as part of programming, research and advocacy. If you have any suggestions or feedback on applications of HEA or CotD or the webiste, or would like a copy of the CotD software, please contact us using the email addresses provided below.
