The minimal usage of healthcare services in Jimma Zone is primarily attributable to the area’s distance from the nearest hospital or health centre and its residents’ inability to pay for both treatment and transportation. This had negative consequences on improving healthcare and hindered progress on reducing maternal mortality and postnatal care, along with low-quality healthcare and limited access to services.
Performance-based financing in health care
Health system finance has changed as a result of performance-based financing (PBF). By explicitly tying payments to performance, the finance mechanism takes the place of passive purchase arrangements. After their outputs are verified, healthcare practitioners are paid in PBF.
In Borana, Cordaid Ethiopia used the PBF strategy. We made the decision to expand PBG in Jimma’s healthcare system in light of the outcomes in Borana. Since it was put into place, the strategy has greatly increased data dependability, care quality, and accessibility to healthcare.
