Results-based financing (RBF) ties health provider payments to the quantity or quality of services that they provide. The underlying theory of RBF is that health services improve when providers are incentivized to meet clear targets while exercising a greater level of autonomy in aligning both “process” and “input” factors related to service provision. Process factors largely refer to behaviors and practices undertaken by providers during interactions with clients. Input factors largely refer to the availability of drugs and supplies.
