The next English-spoken PBF course will be in Mombasa ftom the 28th of October to the 9th of November, 2019.
This 78th performance-based financing (PBF) course took place from Monday, April 1st to Saturday, April 13th 2019, in Mombasa, Kenya. Twenty-six participants attended the course: 14 from Nigeria, 7 from Ethiopia, 2 from Cameroon and 2 from the Netherlands.
Hereby the course report.
The Nigeria team consisted of fourteen participants, from the Ministries of Health in Adamawa, Borno, Kebbi, Kwara, Nasarawa, Ondo and Yobe States. The Ethiopia teams consisted of three participants from the Ministry of Health at federal level and four from a PBF pilot in Borona Zone in Oromia regionThe two participants from Cameroon were from the North West region. We welcomed one participant from CAR and two from The Netherlands – one working at CORDAID head office in The Hague, and the other a senior general practitioner in Holland.
The “Village 78” authorities consisted of the Village Chief, Dr. Omar IBRAHIM; the Deputy Village Chief, Flora KWIZERA; the time keeper, Buzinel Gudisa Mijena; the Finance Ministers, Kinyuy Margaret Gham and Kees Melcherts and the EnergizersBaba Laminu, Abubakar Abana and Mekdelawit Mengesha.
They actively supported the facilitation process and contributed to a congenial atmosphere while maintaining “order” in the village.
Evaluation of the course venue and the course
Twenty-six participants conducted the final exam. The average test score result was 67% with six certificates of distinction and six certificates of attendance.
This was the third course in the 4-star Traveller’s Hotel, which provided a professional and pleasant ambiance. This justified the higher full board tuition fee.
The daily evaluations yielded scores, which were with 85%, 1,6% above the previous 24 English courses and 6% above the previous French-spoken course. Methods and facilitation scored 87,5% (the same as the previous courses). Participation scored 87.2% (the same as the previous courses). Organization scored 86.6% (0,3% above the average of the previous courses). The subject of timekeeping scored 78,8% (6,2% above the average of the previous courses).
The final evaluation indicated that for 88% of the participants the content of the course related well to their regular professional activities. Yet, only 52% said that they were well-informed in advance about the course and some indicated that the course book should have been distributed 1-2 weeks in advance of the course. The fact that some participants’ names were only known a week before the commencement of the course contributed to this score. Participants were satisfied with the methodology and the organization. In October 2018 a large proportion of 43% of participants thought the course to be too short and nobody thought that the course was too long. This course we added one day (the Saturday) to the course duration and this worked better to reduce the time pressure to finalise the action plans as well as the course modules.
