The Ethiopian Ministry of Health (MoH) in partnership with Catholic Organization for Relief and Development Aid (CORDAID) with funding from the Netherlands Embassy are Piloting a Performance Based Financing (PBF) in Addis Ababa, SNNP and Somali regions. The project will use result-based financing approaches to reward service providers based on pre agreed targets. The project will follow the FMoH design as stipulated in the Project Implementation Manual (PIM) of the FMoH. The project seeks to improved availability and accessibility of good quality healthcare at primary and secondary level in the geographical areas, and a stronger health system at large, which supports the progressive realization of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in line with SDG target 3.8.
