Results-based financing in health

Results-based financing (RBF) in health is a container term. It involves supply side and demand side interventions. We have particular experience and know-how in the supply side performance-based financing (PBF) modality of RBF.

We have conducted several PBF feasibility studies in Africa and Asia, ranging from out-of-pocket expenditure studies to complete health system assessments (Tanzania, South Sudan, Sudan, Afghanistan). We provided technical assistance on the design of PBF in northern Uganda and evaluated PBF performance in mid-Uganda and Indonesia. Furthermore,  we provided technical expertise to the government of Zimbabwe on the institutionalization of RBF through the development of the Medium-Term Results-Based Financing Framework (World Bank).
