A major step in the scale-up of a PBF system is the creation of a national technical unit, which can be located in the Ministry of Health or a national agency.
The Ministry of Health of Benin and its partners have decided to set up such a national unit : the Direction of Planning of the Ministry of Health is looking for guidance to design its national unit ; More particularly, they are looking for information about similar national units in other countries – for instance: job descriptions, composition of the unit, accountability mechanisms towards national and international stakeholders…). Your experience with these units and their performance will also be much appreciated.
It is very easy to participate to this collaborative project : you just have to send to the Director of Planning and the lead facilitator of the PBF Community of Practice the different documents describing your national unit. You can also share your personal experience on the online forum of the PBF CoP.
You are a Performance-Based Financing expert and hold some information or experience on PBF national units. Your contributions are expected before October 21st 2016.
