Benin, after several years of implementation of the FBR and covering all the health zones of the country, is obliged not to continue. This was due to disagreements among different donors about the approach, the weak commitment of the government to engage and negative comments from some focal academians about PBF in general. Yet, most commentators regret this new situation concerning the stopping of the RBF in Benin and call for a renewed RBF approach in Benin. From the conclusions of the interactions in Benin and exchanges at the COP PBF, there is a desire for the resumption of the initiative in view of its effectiveness.
