Check out the video of the #EngagingWithEvidence session about the Living Goods’ Results-Based Financing (RBF) program for Community Health in Uganda. Our Associate Partner, Nicole Pflock, joined experts from Living Goods, Government Outcomes Lab, University of Oxford, Financing Alliance for Health, and USAID to share their learnings and insights from implementing the program.
Living Goods has empowered over 11,000 digitally-enabled community health workers to provide essential care, enhancing access to treatments and services. They implemented a successful one-year pilot Results-Based Financing (RBF) program in 2018 in two districts in Uganda (Masaka and Kyotera). The accomplishments of this project gave rise to the scale-up of the RBF to three additional districts, Mafubira, Lira, and Wobulenzi, targeting approximately 2,000 CHWs. The expanded program, which began implementation in October 2020 for a duration of 27 months, aimed to drive improved cost-effectiveness and quality of community health services targeting underserved and at-risk populations.
This insightful session presents the measurable improvements achieved, explores further research areas, and shares insights into using RBF to enhance community health worker programs.
