In November 2014, Cordaid conducted an internal verification of the RBF programme it is implementing on behalf of the ministry of health in Cameroun.
The evaluation points towards positive effects on the quantity and quality of care. The community component of the programme is well organized and uses a set of seven different incentives to motivate health centre committees and community health workers. In addition, community based organisations regularly measure patient attitudes through surveys and a bonus is paid to health centres for treatment of the poorest in society.
Recommendations for further improvement include strengthening of financial management and the increased capacities for internal verification of results. Implementation activities are currently performed by Cordaid, but a transfer to an independent regional organisation is planned for 2015.
