TRAction to present PBI research during the Payment for Performance Workshop in Tanzania

Tuesday, November 24, 2021

The Performance-Based Financing (PBF) Community of Practice is hosting a three-day workshop in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to share knowledge on the health system effects of PBF. The workshop, entitled “Payment for Performance: a health systems perspective” will take place November 24-26, 2015. The event will bring together the PBF Community of Practice and academic institutions to discuss the effects of PBF on quality of care, the scalability of PBF, implementation challenges, the effects of PBF on health workers and broader system level effects, and measuring and evaluating PBF.

Four TRAction-funded studies on the effect of PBF programs on quality of care will be presented and discussed during the workshop.  Erik Josephson from Thinkwell will present results from a global landscape review of QoC within PBF programming with a focus on quality indicators and score calculations. He will present during the panel “How to Incentivize Quality of Care?” on Tuesday, November 24th.

Stephen Brenner from the University of Heidelberg Institute of Public Health (UH) will present mixed-methods results from the RBF4MNH study, with a focus on the effects of the program on both the structural and psycho-social work environment.  He will present during the panel, titled “Effects on health workers and the work environment” on Wednesday, November 25th.

On Thursday, November 26th, Manuela de Allegri of UH will present the methodological framework for the SSDI-PBI evaluation study, with a focus on four complementary branches of research: implementation processes, service provision, provider motivation and program costing.

April Williamson from Results for Development will present on the Quality Assessment Instrument study in Senegal, with a focus on how and to what extent providers react to quality incentives. She will present during the “Measuring Motivation” panel on Thursday, November 26th.
