In 2010, the Ministry of Public Health and for the Fight against AIDS of Burundi adopted a Performance-Based Financing approach to address issues in the country's  free package of health services scheme. Piloted for four years, the project was subsequently scaled up nationally. To better understand the dynamics and mechanisms after four years of implementation at the national level, the National Technical Unit for Performance-Based Financing (TU-PBF) analyzed the evolution of some quantitative indicators subsidized by PBF between 2011 and 2013.

This publication is the result of a capitalization process that took place in Burundi in 2014/2015. The aim of capitalization is to surface and generate lessons learned from implementing PBF that can be used by other to learn about new or promising practices or to influence policies on the basis of real-life experiences. The process was facilitated by Jurien Toonen and Christel Jansen from KIT Health
