Beyond the travelling model? Strategic usage and hybridisation of performance-based financing (PBF) in health in Burundi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Performance-based Financing (PBF) has travelled extensively in Africa. The analysis of interviews with key actors and grey literature shows that its implementation in Burundi corresponds to a strategic usage, as a tool for achieving a policy of selective free health-care. It also reinforces a technocratic elite within the Ministry of Health. Grasping such political and strategic reterritorialisation is key to comprehend global health travelling models.
