RBF stands for Results Based Financing and aims at improving health services for the poorest and most vulnerable people, especially those in isolated, rural areas. The essence of RBF is a direct link between funding and results. Contrary to a traditional input financing system, healthcare providers receive their
payments only after their output has been verified.
But RBF is more than just a change in the way healthcare
providers are paid: it is a health system reform strategy that
is built on many years of experience with health system
strengthening, it introduces checks and balances, motivates
staff, promotes entrepreneurship and involves private parties as well as communities.
