Department of Health Policy Planning and Management to co-host a workshop on Performance Based Financing in Uganda

The Ministry of Health is committed to move towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC) as a way to provide better, more inclusive and more accessible health services to the Uganda population. This strategy aims at improving primary health care organisation and the overall national health system to increase access and quality of health services, assuring at the same time financial protections to the people at risk.

Performance-Based Financing (PBF) has been proposed as an innovative fund allocation mechanism that can accelerate progress of low income countries, like Uganda, in achieving the health-related goals and universal coverage through strategic purchasing of health services.

The proposed orientation workshop will disseminate concepts and knowledge among stakeholders and individuals who might be soon involved in the design and implementation of PBF initiatives in the country. It aims to generate a debate among academics, health personnel, policy makers, public health advisors and implementers on risks and benefits of PBF in Uganda.

Finally, it will promote harmonization in the future implementation of PBF in Uganda and institutionalise a working group to assist the MoH in the implementation of a national model for PBF and in definition of coherent national health financing strategies.
