A Conversation on Performance-Based Financing for Health

de Walque Damien B. C. M._P

Our Speaker:

Damien de Walque, Senior Economist, The World Bank

Damien de Walque is a Senior Economist in the Development Research Group (Human Development and Public Services Team) at the World Bank. He received his PhD in Economics from the University of Chicago in 2003. His research interests include health and education and the interactions between them. His current work is focused on evaluating the impact of financial incentives on health and education outcomes.

Please join us for a conversation on performance-based financing (PBF) for health. PBF is a complex health systems intervention aimed at improving coverage and quality of care. Dr. Damien de Walque will provide an overview of the World Bank’s impact evaluation portfolio of PBF for health interventions, and then dive into a case study of PBF in Cameroon. The impact evaluation in Cameroon seeks to isolate the role of specific components of the PBF approach on health outcomes of interest, such as explicit financial incentives linked to results, additional resources available at the point of service delivery (not linked to performance), and enhanced supervision, coaching and monitoring.
