Innovations in Results-Based Financing in the Latin America and Caribbean Region
The Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region is one of the most innovative in Results-Based Financing (RBF) for health. In the LAC region, a broad range of RBF modalities have been in place for some time, sometimes but not always financed by IBRD funds. Probably the most famous of these is Plan Nacer in Argentina, which links RBF to the concept of insurance with capitation payments.
However, there are also several other capitation-based RBF schemes in the region similar to Plan Nacer, but with important and innovative differences. In addition, there are several different types of RBF schemes in LAC countries such as programs with Disbursement-Linked Indicators and Output-Based Disbursements, where the focus is on performance incentives for states and municipalities.
This seminar features a comparative review of different types of RBF schemes in the LAC region, as well as case studies from selected schemes
