PIERI-20379 IMPACT EVALUATION OF COMMUNITY RESULTS BASED FINANCING IN HEALTH IN ZAMBIA

Abstract

The purpose of the study is conduct an impact evaluation of the community Results Based Financing Model that is currently being implemented in Zambia. The Results based Financing project was piloted in 30 districts covering in 2012 and 2014. It was further rolled out to more districts in 5 provinces 2016. The a new component that involves community workers was included in the 2016 approach. The community model is currently being implemented in a few districts and is scheduled to be rolled out to the other districts later this year. The idea is to conduct an impact evaluation to assess the effect of the community RBF model on improving maternal and child health and nutrition indicators. The overall goal of the community RBF is to contribute to an increase in coverage of maternal and neonatal and child health and nutrition indicators. It is expected that districts with community RBF will perform better than those without the RBF. Further, we would like to explore the possibility of assessing whether the same effect of the community RBF can be attained at a lower cost. The idea is that the community RBF model should be set in order to minimize costs, ensure wider scalability and ultimately ensure sustainability of the program.
