A few weeks ago, a group of international experts published a scientific paper called “Performance-based financing in low-income and middle-income countries, isn’t it time for a rethink?”. ". This controversial article raises important questions about Performance Based Financing. It also expresses judgments that some experts, and especially African experts, do not share (see here and here). We would like to submit a response to the BMJ Global Health involving experts from the PBF Community of Practice. In this call we will set up the team that will produce this answer.
