Performance-based incentive schemes are continuing to receive growing attention from governments, aid agencies and donors. Several low-income countries, remarkably in sub-Saharan Africa, are incorporating key components of the approach in the reform of their public health systems. Stakeholders are attracted by the potential of the strategy to accelerate progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. Operational and scientific knowledge is accumulating. .

In the follow-up of the event organised at the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp, in December 2008, the "Incentives for Health Provider Performance Network" is organising a new international workshop for experts. The workshop will cover recent developments at country level, both in terms of operational lessons and scientific evidence. Peculiar attention will be dedicated to fragile states and countries going to scale. Political and scientific challenges will be discussed. Extensive attention will be dedicated to limits and risks convened by approaches as they are currently developed in low-income countries.

The workshop will take place on the 17 and 18/12/2009 at the CERDI, in Clermont-Ferrand, France. It will be held in French and English. .
