This article undertakes an economic evaluation of Fica Vivo Program in the slum of Morro das Pedras in Belo Horizonte. The cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit analyses were run for the 2004-2006 period. The costs were accounted based on information by the Social Defense Secretary (SEDS) and the State Police (PMMG). To reach the program effectiveness we use double difference matching model, taking the homicide ratio per one hundred thousand inhabitants as the impact variable. Using a conservative estimate, the cost of one homicide prevented by Fica Vivo is about one hundred forty four thousand dollars and its return rate is 99%. Compared with international evaluations of similar control and prevention programs the Fica Vivo Program is within the ones of greater return to society.
