An Annotated Bibliography of Health Science Literature on RBF Indicators for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent Health

Evaluation Research on Results-Based Financing: An Annotated Bibliography of Health Science Literature on RBF Indicators for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent HealthThis annotated bibliography offers a critical review of peer-reviewed and gray literature, published between 2002 and 2016, and relevant to indicators for the monitoring and evaluation of results-based financing (RBF) initiatives for reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child, and adolescent health (RMNCAH). Unlike a systematic review, this annotated bibliography does not aim to be a comprehensive assessment of the research on RBF for health. Rather, it seeks to describe the conceptual contribution and practical experiences of experts in using indicators to assess performance and quality throughout RMNCAH-focused RBF schemes.

The review includes peer-reviewed articles, toolkits, technical briefs, case studies, and evaluation reports. Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, posters, and books are not included. Articles were identified via key informant interviews, online database searches, and website reviews. For Google Scholar and the PubMed databases, search terms were indicators, results based financing, performance based financing, performance based funding, quality, reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child, and adolescent health. Gray literature was identified through searches of the following regional, multilateral, and donor websites: RBFHealth, World Bank, World Health Organization, BlueSquare, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), USAID TRAction Project, Salud Mesoamerica Initiative, Pan American Health Organization, the United Nations Children’s Fund, and the USAID-funded MEASURE Evaluation. Review of the listed references of pertinent articles yielded additional resources.
