Aid Effectivness Portal

This website was created to support policy makers and practitioners working to boost the effectiveness of aid and its contribution to development in their countries. The 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and the 2008 Accra Agenda for Action set out to accomplish a major shift in the way development assistance is provided. Their core principles – ownership, alignment, harmonization, managing for results and mutual accountability – are a radical change for both donors and partner countries.

Leadership and Management

A broken health system is a silent killer. People get sicker and die in disproportionate numbers just as they do during an epidemic. Yet the culprit is not lack of knowledge. Nor is it always a shortage of funds. Technically and medically, we know what to do to reduce illness and save lives. But what is sorely amiss is the dearth of knowledge and skill to manage these very complicated health systems. Dr. William H. Foege sums up the issue as "global health waits expectantly for management to match its science."

Signed, Sealed, Delivered? Evidence from Rwanda on the Impact of Results-based Financing for Health

Excitement is growing about results-based financing (RBF) for health, a financing mechanism that turns the traditional donor approach of paying for inputs on its head. RBF for health is a cash payment or non-monetary transfer made to a national or sub-national government, provider, payer, or consumer of health services after predefined results have been attained and verified.

Paying Primary Health Care Centers for Performance in Rwanda

Paying for performance (P4P) provides financial incentives for providers to increase the use and quality of care. P4P can affect health care by providing incentives for providers to put more effort into specific activities, and by increasing the amount of resources available to finance the delivery of services. This paper evaluates the impact of P4P on the use and quality of prenatal, institutional delivery, and child preventive care using data produced from a prospective quasi-experimental evaluation nested into the national rollout of P4P in Rwanda.
