This project is a spin-off of the international meeting organized in Antwerp on September 14-15. The starting point of the Antwerp meeting was the recognition that indicators currently used by Performance Based Financing (PBF) programs need to be revised. Updating these indicators will lead to greater benefits for the hundred thousands of family planning users in PBF programs. The fifty participants of the meeting identified six priority dimensions on which PBF systems should focus, as for family planning services: client experience, outcomes, staff technical knowledge, structural indicators, patient rights and equity. We look for experts willing to finalize indicators for each of these six dimensions.
This activity specifically relates to the ‘outcomes’ dimension. By ‘outcomes’, we refer to the actual outcomes of the family planning services. Outcomes are sometimes difficult to measure, but they are the main reasons why users came to the facility.
As a member of this team, you will be expected to finalize a list of recommendations and propose up to 7 indicators for the 'outcomes' dimension. Among other tasks, you will have to:
This subgroup will be facilitated by Solome Kiribakka Bakeera and Corinne Grainger. They are looking for experts and scholars familiar with PBF interventions or family planning services. They aim for a group of 8 experts maximum. Having participated to the Antwerp meeting is an asset.
