The Effects of Performance-Based Financing on neonatal health outcomes in Burundi, Lesotho, Senegal, Zambia and Zimbabwe
Maternal and newborn care has been a primary focus of performance-based financing (PBF) projects, which have been piloted or implemented in 21 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa since 2007. While evaluations of PBF have demonstrated improvements to facility delivery or quality of care, no studies had measured the impact of PBF programs directly on neonatal health outcomes in Africa. This seminar will present new work by Harvard Researchers examining the impact of PBF on early neonatal health outcomes and associated health care utilization and quality in Burundi, Lesotho, Senegal, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
