THE CHALLENGE

This thematic group is part of the larger collaborative learning initiative on strategic purchasing, an initiative jointly led by the WHO, ITM and the FAHS and PBF Communities of Practice. It also builds  on an international meeting recently co-organised by the PBF CoP.

A key feature of PBF/P4P programmes is that one can introduce new indicators, remove redundant ones and thus generally adapt the reward structure on the basis of new evidence at global and country levels. In an ideal “strategic purchasing” system, such assessment and updating would be done regularly. In practice however, this does not seem to be done enough. There are probably several reasons for this state of affairs, including poor connection between PBF/P4P program managers and other knowledge silos (neonatal health, nutrition, tuberculosis…). The main goal of this sub-group will be to familiarize the community of PBF experts with Health Technology Assessment and start a conversation with them on how evidence on health interventions could be better and faster integrated into PBF/P4P programs. 

YOUR CONTRIBUTION

As a member of this sub-group, you will : 

  • Co-organize a collective discussion with experts of the PBF CoP on how HTA could be integrated into PBF programs
  • Co-organize a webinar on Health Technology Assessment in Low- and Middle-Income Countries 
  • Synthesize results of the process in a blog.

 

Time framework: October 2017-March 2018

This subgroup will work in close collaboration with this other subgroupInteraction will be in English.

 

THE DREAM TEAM

This project is open to members of the Strategic Purchasing working group and participants of the PBF & Family Planning meeting. We look for experts already involved in Performance-Based Financing / Pay-for-Performance programs or with experience in HTA. The subgroup will be facilitated by Bruno Meessen, Laura Downey and Olivier Basenya
