Global Health Mini-University

Friday, March 4, 2022
The George Washington University's Cloyd Heck Marvin Center in Washington, DC
Event: Global Health Mini-University

On March 4th, 2016, TRAction Project will moderate a panel session on quality of care (QoC) within Performance-Based Incentives (PBI) programs at the Global Health Mini-University in Washington, DC.

The Global Health Mini-University is an annual, day-long forum that brings together professionals and students interested in a variety of global health areas. The Mini-U offers a variety of presentations highlighting evidence-based best practices and state-of-the-art information. The Mini-University hosts a selection of concurrent sessions from technical areas including: HIV/AIDS; family planning and reproductive health; maternal, neonatal, and child health; infectious disease; non-communicable disease; health systems; nutrition; environmental health; and humanitarian relief.

TRAction Project and its research partners have organized a panel session called "Considerations in Planning and Evaluating Performance-Based Incentives Schemes," wherein panelists will discuss how countries are incentivizing improved quality within PBI programs. Low and middle income countries are increasingly concerned with improving the quality of health services provided to patients and are incorporating quality of care (QoC) measures within Performance-Based Incentives (PBI) programs. In this session, panelists will present the results of four USAID|TRAction Project-supported studies that examine QoC in the planning, implementation, and evaluation phases of PBI programs. Panelists will give an overview of the global landscape of PBI programs, including how and to what extent quality is incorporated. Illustrative examples of research in Kenya, Senegal and Malawi will highlight how results have informed PBI scale-up in each country. Practical consideration will be given to challenges in measuring quality and verifying results, intervention effects on provider ability to provide higher quality care, and the management of stakeholder dynamics.

Panel session title: Considerations in Planning and Evaluating Peformance-Based Incentives Schemes
Moderator: Christine Ortiz, University Research Company, TRAction Project
Date: Friday, March 4, 2022
