Performance-based financing (PBF) is a powerful management and financial approach that increases the quantity and quality of health services delivered by providing incentives to health care providers to improve performance. This health system reform maximizes the impact of US foreign assistance investments because financing is conditional on results as opposed to traditionally-financed inputs. PBF is heralded as an innovative and highly impactful solution to accelerate achievements in global health – particularly priority services that improve the health of women and children. PBF increases coverage of high-impact global health interventions, encourages transparency and ownership of host-country health systems, and improves the health of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable.
What do we know about the link between PBF and health outcomes? What has worked, where, and what is the evidence? What are the implications for Congress and policy making?
