The overall objective of the dissemination meeting was to share, discuss, and validate the Black Box Study findings and recommendations with the PNFBR and other key stakeholders in RBF implementation in Senegal.

Five presentations occurred at iHEA 2017 from two TRAction-supported performance-based incentive projects:

  1. Assessing Quality of Care in Malawi's Support for Service Delivery and Integration (SSDI) Project's Performance Based Incentives Intervention, and 
  2. Results Based Financing for Maternal Neonatal Health (RBF4MNH)

 

Abstract Presentations:

Brief 3: Value for Money – Results of the Economic Evaluation: Evaluation of Malawi’s Support For Service Delivery Integration PBI Intervention

The SSDI-PBI program aims to increase access, utilization, and quality of essential health services by linking rewards to service utilization and quality indicators across a range of conditions and services.

Brief 2: Facilitators and Barriers of Implementation: Evaluation of Malawi’s Support For Service Delivery Integration PBI Intervention

The SSDI-PBI program aims to increase access, utilization, and quality of essential health services by linking rewards to service utilization and quality indicators across a range of conditions and services. Implemented by the Ministry of Health with funding from USAID and technical support from Jhpiego and Abt Associates, the program operates in 17 facilities across Chitipa, Nkhotakota, and Mangochi districts.

Brief 1: Effect of Incentives on Service Quantity and Quality: Evaluation of Malawi’s Support For Service Delivery Integration PBI Intervention

The SSDI-PBI program aims to increase access, utilization, and quality of essential health services by linking rewards to service utilization and quality indicators across a range of conditions and services. Implemented by the Ministry of Health with funding from USAID and technical support from Jhpiego and Abt Associates, the program operates in 17 facilities across Chitipa, Nkhotakota, and Mangochi districts.

Manifestations and drivers of mistreatment of women during childbirth in Kenya: implications for measurement and developing interventions

This paper builds on the expanding literature on mistreatment during labor and childbirth–outlining drivers from an individual, family, community, facility and policy level. New frameworks to group the manifestations into themes or components makes it increasingly more focused on specific interventions to promote respectful maternity care. The Kenya findings resonate with budding literature–demonstrating that this is indeed a global issue that needs a global solution.

Experimental hut evaluation of a novel long‑lasting non‑pyrethroid durable wall lining for control of pyrethroid‑resistant Anopheles gambiae and Anopheles funestus in Tanzania

A novel, insecticide-treated, durable wall lining (ITWL), which mimics indoor residual spraying (IRS), has been developed to provide prolonged vector control when fixed to the inner walls of houses. PermaNet ITWL is a polypropylene material containing non-pyrethroids (abamectin and fenpyroximate) which migrate gradually to the surface.

Universal versus conditional three-day follow up visit for children with uncomplicated fever at the community level: design of a cluster randomized, community-based, non-inferiority trial in Tanganyika, Democratic Republic of Congo

The current recommendation within Integrated Community Case Management guidelines that all children presenting with uncomplicated fever and no danger signs be followed up after three days may not be necessary. Such fevers often resolve rapidly (usually 48-96 h), and previous studies suggest that expectant home care for uncomplicated fever can be safely recommended. We aim to determine the non-inferiority of a conditional versus a universal follow-up visit fort these children.

 

A qualitative study assessing the acceptability and adoption of implementing a results based financing intervention to improve maternal and neonatal health in Malawi

Abstract
 
Background
Results Based Financing (RBF) interventions have recently gained significant momentum, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. However, most of the research has focused on the evaluation of the impacts of this approach, providing little insight into how the contextual circumstances surrounding the implementation have contributed to its success or failure. This study aims to fill a void in the current literature on RBF by focusing explicitly on the process of implementing a RBF intervention rather than on its impact.
