Performance-based incentives (PBIs) aim to motivate all the people and teams who comprise a public supply chain to work hard and perform their function well. PBI is an innovative approach that explicitly links financial investment to results.
Two new publications focus on PBI for public health supply chains. A brief from the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT, Commercial Sector Performance-Based Financing Offers Lessons for Public Health Supply Chains in Developing Countries, provides a short introduction to PBI and describes challenges and further resources.
A recent collaboration by Health Systems 2020, SCMS, the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT, and Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services has also produced the Options Guide: Performance-Based Incentives to Strengthen Public Health Supply Chains--Version 1. The 85-page guide is intended to facilitate the task of developing successful PBI initiatives to strengthen supply system performance and thereby improve health outcomes in low- and middle-income countries.
The guide includes sections such as—
· Is PBI Right for Your Country?
· Materials and Resources Needed
· Commercial and Public Sector Examples
· Lessons Learned
· Understanding Existing Incentives in Your System
· Determining Recipients, Indicators, and Targets
· How to Verify Performance
· Determining Payment Amounts and Mechanisms
· How to Make PBI Operational
· Developing an Advocacy Strategy.
