This study in Cameroon examines how Performance-Based Financing (PBF), as a contracting approach, can reinforce private-public partnerships, enhance public health goals, and contribute to the goal of Universal Health Coverage.

The research compares data from private–for-profit, faith-based and public health facilities contracted under PBF. It also looks at such indicators as the package of health services provided; the quality of services; and number of referral patients.
