CGD Blog Post Examines Application Of Economic Theories To Global Health Financing

Center for Global Development’s “Global Health Policy Blog”: How Could the Global Fund Get More Health for Its Money? Lessons from the Economics of Contract Theory
Mead Over, senior fellow at CGD, discusses two papers that were presented at a working group meeting on financing models in global health in April 2015. The two papers “apply the economic theories of regulation and incentives to the contracts between global health donors and service delivery organizations in recipient countries. … I see these two papers as contributions to the broader literature on results-based financing, including cash on delivery models. They offer new ideas about how to shift from cost-reimbursement, or input financing, to payments for verified outcomes to improve value for money,” Over writes (3/28).
