Improving Effective Coverage in Health: Do Financial Incentives Work?

January 24 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EST

GAVI and the WB have the pleasure to invite you for this webinar on January 24, 2023 at 9 a.m. EST (3 p.m. CET).
The World Bank published a new Policy Research Report Improving Effective Coverage in Health: Do Financial Incentives Work?, that builds on the rigorous body of evidence accumulated on performance-based financing (PBF) to examine the impacts of PBF and draw lessons for the future of health financing. The PBF programs studied in the report have largely been implemented in primary healthcare—specifically maternal and child healthcare—in low-income countries, although the report also draws on some evidence from higher level health facilities and middle-income countries. The report’s lead authors Damien de Walque and Eeshani Kandpal will review evidence on the impacts of PBF on health service delivery spanning fifteen years and nearly forty countries with a particular emphasis on the quality of service delivery and vaccinations.
  • Eeshani Kandpal: Senior Economist in the Development Research Group of the World Bank
  • Damien de Walque: Lead Economist in the Development Research Group (Human Development Team) at the World Bank
This one hour webinar will have an initial presentation from the authors followed by a Q&A session.
