  • The World Bank has been addressing some challenges through results based financing (RBF). RBF has shifted the focus from inputs to This has been essential in achieving strong results in our Health Results Innovation Trust Fund (HRITF) funded projects. Moreover, by building strong M&E components into these projects, we have been not only better able to gauge progress, but also build country level capacity for M&E. Data from several countries, including Nigeria, and Zimbabwe, show that RBF programs are increasing coverage and quality of services. They are also making health systems stronger, more efficient and more accountable.
    • In Zimbabwe, coverage in institutional increased from 50% to 75% between March to December 2012 because of the focus on results, and in Nigeria, the quality of service increased from 28% to 55%. Countries have also seen significant increases in the number of beneficiaries who now have access to RMNCH

Policy & Political Update

 

As a result of the Reproductive Health Action plan, the number of World Bank country strategies and projects that address reproductive health is increasing. The Country Assistance Strategy (CAS) or Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) guides the World Bank’s multi-sectoral engagement with a country. Between FY11 and FY13, of the 44 CAS/CPS approved in high-burden countries, 100 percent included reproductive health. The CAS/CPS reflect the country-specific issues, such as family planning, skilled birth attendance, emergency obstetrics care (for instance), which are all part of RH. In terms of lending, of the RMNCH funds, more than 67% of new health, nutrition and population projects occurred in countries with high maternal mortality and high fertility to address RMNCH.
