Women who have taken EC or who have irregular cycles may have an even longer wait for their next menses.

As a result, they reduced their health care costs. For example, if the average cost per day of hospitalization were $1,000 and the average cost of an emergency room visit were $100, the potential savings would be $990 per participant for the first year following completion of the program (0.97 days of hospitalization multiplied by $1,000 plus 0.2 emergency visits multiplied by $100).

A review of YRH programs in African countries found that such programs cost between US$0.30 and US$71 per year per person, with a median cost of about US$9 per person per year (World Bank, 2003). Moreover, recent studies have found that sexuality education programs offer a good return on investment. For example, a study in Honduras found that for each $1.00 invested in sexuality education to prevent HIV infection among youth, the program would generate up to $4.

Social franchising, or networks of private providers who offer a standard set of services and share training, referral systems, quality standards and brands is one such example.

  • Second, system owners or investors with limited state tax burdens may not be able to take full advantage of the ITC. Thus, a tax credit may have little value to low- and moderate- income residents and others who have a small state-tax liability. While nearly all state tax- credit programs allow the unused portion of the credit to be carried over for five or 10 years, spreading the credit over time reduces its benefit. Third, ITCs reward the purchase and installation of technologies regardless of potential or actual energy production. Federal ITCs implemented in the 1970s and 1980s...
