About Peter Binyaruka

I am a health economist at Ifakara health institute (IHI) in Tanzania. My areas of research include impact evaluation, health financing, distributional/ equity analyses, and health system performance. I have participated in an impact evaluation of a voucher scheme for poor pregnant women, and Pay for Performance (P4P) pilot in Tanzania. I am currently a co-PI of the research team which evaluates the national scale-up of the Results-based financing (RBF) in Tanzania.
