Cost-Effectiveness of Results-Based Financing Programs in Zimbabwe and Zambia
Profs. Shepard and Zeng have been leading projects for the Bank to develop methods for performing a cost-effectiveness analysis of Results-Based Financing (RBF) programs and applying them to maternal-child health (MCH) services in Zambia and Zimbabwe. Both countries’ RBF programs proved highly cost-effective. Methods and results should be informative to other RBF and MCH programs.
