Using Results-based Funding to Drive Health Equity
A new report from Social Finance and ACTION presents results-based funding (RBF) as an important tool for development funders to consider adopting in order to create equitable health systems. RBF is a relatively new approach to development funding, but it has been widely tested in global health, with overall positive results. The funder transfers funds in exchange for specific results agreed to by both parties. When implemented well, RBF can increase the results focus, rigor, and recipient autonomy and flexibility of development programs.
