Cambodia

This presentation was given during an international workshop organized by CERDI in December 2009.

Bart Jacobs shared experiences and lessons from Cambodia's national scale up of PBF in Session 2 of the workshop - From Pilot to National Policy: Scaling up PBF Schemes. The main objective of the session was to draw lessons from the few pioneer countries that are currently in the process of scaling up performance-based financing schemes nation-wide. Particular attention was given to: the initial plan, constraints on scale up, the actual process, challenges, and progress.

This brief is an overview of Cambodia’s efforts to reach the rural poor with health care services. In the mid-1990s, the country began an experiment of contracting NGOs to manage the public health care system at the district level in rural areas, with results that show that while all districts increased health service coverage rates, the contracted districts outperformed the government districts in achieving higher coverage rates and providing a more pro-poor distribution of services.
