EGPAF is implementing a performance-based financing (PBF) program to improve health outcomes in Gaza and Nampula provinces. The PBF program is used to decentralize resources and motivate healthcare providers to improve quality of services. The facility healthcare workers are aware of the incentives offered and so there is a need to verify the quality of the services provided and the data reported. EpiSurveyor surveys via mobile phones collect data that verify the quality of services.

Challenge(s)

PBF outputs need to be verified by external data audits at the community level. Paper surveys are costly and time consuming.

Audience

Facility Healthcare Workers, Data Auditors

Key Technologies

Mobile Phones, EpiSurveyor, Back- up Database

Metrics/ Evidence

Verification of PBF outputs has shown improved quality of care, worker motivation and reinforced accountability.
