The mechanism that is the subject of this case study is a USAID-funded, co-implementation between the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Management Sciences for Health (MSH), and NGO. The PBF program is a component of the USAID Integrated Health Project (known as PROSANI in DRC) working in collaboration with the Ministry of Health to strengthen the quality and accessibility of the health system. DRC is one of the poorest countries in the world and is one of the least developed in Africa. It is also a country which has had not only one of the longest histories with performance-based financing in health, but possibly the most numerous different programs involving varying purchasers, fund-holders and technical assistance agencies.
