Kenya: performance-based healthcare
UN Web TV "Add Your Voice" series - In Kenya’s remote Samburu County, women and children are getting basic health services as part of a pilot project for “performance-based financing”, a new approach that is spurring health facilities to deliver more health services and meet quality standards.
Getting healthcare out to rural areas in Kenya can be a real challenge. Funds have been scarce, and trained doctors and nurses hard to attract.
The good news is that change is afoot. Money is now being sent directly from the government in Nairobi to each rural health center, through a special fund known as the Health Sector Services Fund.
