Using Performance-Based Incentives to Enhance the Quality of Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health Interventions in Developing Countries: Theory and Practice

Thursday, April 7, 2011 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm

CGD Director of Global Health Policy Amanda Glassman will moderate a panel discussion on the use of performance-based incentives to improve maternal, newborn and child health care in developing countries. The event will challenge listeners and stimulate their thinking about how to move beyond lip-service and rhetoric to effective and concrete measures with regards to performance-based incentives in developing countries. The panelists will focus on how performance incentives have been used to improve the quality of services, on how behaviors have changed in response to the incentives and on how this has contributed to a stronger health system.

The event is hosted by the Johns Hopkins – SAIS International Development Program and the Global Health Speaker Series, in collaboration with USAID’s flagship Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) Integrated Program. Please RSVP to creynolds@mchip.net by Friday, April 1, 2011.
