May 16, 2017
The 48-month research project will assist the Government of Georgia in developing a provider incentive payment scheme for Tuberculosis. It will generate evidence on its effects on adherence and treatment success rates and costs. The research will seek to answer the following research questions: (1) What is the impact of provider-focused Results-Based Financing (RBF) on patients, adherence to tuberculosis treatment and treatment outcomes of both Drug-Susceptible (DS) and Multi Drug Resistant (MDR) patients in Georgia? (2) Is the RBF intervention cost-effective? (3) How does it work, for whom and in which conditions? (4) How should RBF be modified to optimize national roll-out for this and possibly other health services? Project has launched in March 2017 and will run till March 2021.
