Performance Incentives for Global Health: Potential and Pitfalls

PBI for Global HealthEdited by Rena Eichler and Ruth Levine

In Part I of this volume, Eichler and Levine describe the rationale for offering incentives for the attainment of health-related goals, and they provide clear guidance about how to design, implement, and evaluate such programs, whether they target healthcare providers, patients, or both.  Part II comprises a set of case studies that examine the use of such incentives to address a range of health conditions and system performance challenges in diverse countries. Performance Incentives for Global Health: Potential and Pitfalls will help interested policymakers and program managers in developing countries and in the donor community improve health care systems through the strategic use of performance incentives.
