USAID, Liberia Work To Incorporate Country-Owned Development Approaches Into Nation’s Health System
Center for Global Development’s “Rethinking U.S. Development Policy”: Country Ownership at USAID: Enabling and Empowering Liberia’s Ministry of Health
Casey Dunning, senior policy analyst, and Claire McGillem, research assistant, both at CGD, discuss the experience of a partnership between USAID and Liberia that used a Fixed Amount Reimbursement Agreement (FARA), a financing mechanism that enables the use of country-owned systems in project implementation — rather than using the typical USAID arrangement in which funding flows through non-governmental implementing partners — to improve health outcomes and strengthen health systems in Liberia (4/28).
