Module 2 of the RBF webinar identifies the essential elements for RBF and explores RBF processes such as contracting and verification in more depth.

Module 1 of the RBF webinar explains what Results-Based Financing (RBF) is and why countries choose to implement RBF programs.

This policy report summarizes lessons from countries implementing Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and focuses on how to maximize the chances of successful implementation. It also aims to understand how countries can effectively generate public and political engagement for pro-poor UHC, use evidence to measure and monitor health services, manage the evolution and growth of service coverage and forms of financial protection, and ensure the quality of the health services people receive.

In this correspondence piece, GFF partners clarify how the GFF is acting to help low-income and middle-income countries to achieve sustainable financing for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health.

Improved outcomes for women and children—more education, lower fertility rates, higher nutritional status, and lower incidence of illness, among other outcomes—have broad individual, family, and societal benefits. For nearly 15 years, the targets of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have been a bellwether for progress, particularly for maternal and child health (MCH)—a two-thirds reduction in under-five mortality in MDG 4 and a three-quarters reduction in the maternal mortality ratio in MDG 5.

World Health Statistics 2015 contains WHO’s annual compilation of health-related data for its 194 Member States, and includes a summary of the progress made towards achieving the health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and associated targets.

Results are at the heart of the Global Financing Facility approach. This infographic describes how the GFF focuses on “best-buy”, evidence-based and high impact solutions for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health.

The Investment Case is at the core of GFF country financing. This infographic explains how countries build Investment Cases using existing planning processes, in line with the principle of country ownership.

The goal of the World Health Organization Recommendations for Prevention and Treatment of Maternal Peripartum Infections is to consolidate guidance for effective interventions that are needed to reduce the global burden of maternal infections and their complications around the time of childbirth.

The updated Global Strategy (2016-2030) puts women, children and adolescents at the heart of the new UN Sustainable Development Goals.
