             Content
 PBF 101 – guiding principles
 Case study of PBF in Rwanda
 Lessons learned
          Input                  vs       Output
        financing
  Payments in advance for               Funds paid for services
   salaries, drugs & supplies,            already delivered
   running costs
 Funds often managed at                 Funds managed at local
   higher levels                          level
 Need to justify expenses               Need strong data
  after payment (financial                collection & quality
  audits)                                 control system
 Tenuous link between                   Direct link between
  funding and results                     funding and results
PBF model – key principles
                 Separation between providers,
                    purchasers and controllers
                   PBF funding does not cover cost
                    of service – just incentivizes it
                   Traditional input financing must
                    continue to complement PBF
                   Data on service outputs must be
                    highly selective and from
                    existing sources
                   Strong service and data quality
                    control mechanisms needed to
                    eliminate incentive to cheat
      Key Rwanda health strategies
 In 2005, MOH introduced three complementary
 strategies to improve health services:
   Community Based Health Insurance to
    increased access
   Performance-based Financing to increase
    availability and quality of services
   Continuous Quality Assurance to enhance
    quality of care
     PBF and Family Planning in
      Rwanda
 Health Center PBF system includes incentives for 2
  indicators:
    # of new FP users
    # of FP users at the end of the month
 Community PBF includes provider-side and client-side
  indicators:
    # of new family planning users referred by CHWs (both)
    % of FP users using long-term methods (provider-side)
    # of FP users adopting long-term methods (client-side)
 Quarterly Quality Assessment process includes an
  assessment of FP service quality
PBF Control is NOT ‘business as
 usual’ in data gathering

                         in a health
                         center
      Assuring Data Quality –
       Multiple checks and balances
 Data ‘quantity’ audits conducted every month on each
  indicator from every site (register vs report)
 Monthly report data are reviewed by district PBF
  steering committees
 Community client or “phantom patient” surveys every
  6 month at a sample of sites – look for phantom patients
  and seeks feedback from patients on quality of care
 National PBF cell reviews database each quarter for
  the entire country – corrections are made before payment
       How to strengthen supervision
        to assure high quality services
 Quarterly Quality assessments are conducted at
  each facility to assess 13 components of service
  quality
    Administration, Hygiene, Respect for Clinical
     protocols for key services, Community outreach, etc.
 Controllers are District Hospital supervisors and
  data managers for health centers, by peer district
  hospitals for Hospital level PBF
 This assessment score is used to offset PBF
  payments
               Performance Payment Mechanism


Performance Payments = Σ (# service outputs * Unit fees) * % Quality
    score

Increase in the Quality of
  Services in Health Centers (1)
        Lessons learned
 Health workers benefit directly from a portion of
  the PBF funding that is shared as bonuses –
  motivation and retention of health workers has
  improved

 PBF reinforces decentralization strategy: Money is
  paid directly to the health facility and managed by
  local steering committee with considerable autonomy

 PBF can lead to a significant increase in service
  production and quality of services in a relatively
  short period of time
