Phase: Started in 2010 Cordaid and WB in 10 districts
Coverage Estimate: 10%
Supported by: WB – Cordaid
Description: WB financed PBF Pilot started in 10 districts after a pre-pilot phase in Katete District. The pilot was linked to an impact evaluation that showed encouraging results. Yet feasibility scan showed a relatively low score of around 50% due to problems with centralised purchasing of inputs, lack of autonomy in health facilities and an unclear separation of functions. The PBF project came to a halt by the end of 2014, but is planned to continue during 2017. A more pure design of the new PBF program is desirable.
