"Incentive Schemes and Performance of Health-Care Providers in Low-Income Countries Recent Developments, Risks and Emerging Challenges"

International Workshop
December 17-18, 2009
CERDI, Clermont-Ferrand - France

Performance-based incentive schemes (Performance-Based Financing, Result-Based Financing, Pay-for-Performance, Output-Based Aid) are receiving growing attention from governments, aid agencies and donors. Several low-income countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, are incorporating these approaches in their public health systems' reform. This workshop, hosted by the CERDI - institute in Clermont-Ferrand, France, will cover recent developments at country level, both in terms of operational lessons learned and scientific evidence. The workshop will focus in particular on fragile states and countries that are in the process of scaling up their performance incentive schemes. The workshop will also provide a platform to discuss the limits and risks related to the perfromance incentive shemes developed in low-income countries.
