Strategic Purchasing for Primary Health Care (SP4PHC)

Principal Investigator


Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF)


This is a multi-country, multi-year project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and implemented in partnership with ThinkWell and Ministry of Health to improve how governments spend funds for Primary Health Care (PHC) services, with a focus on family planning (FP) and maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH). The overarching goal of the SP4PHC project in Uganda is to improve FP and MNCH outcomes within the context of PHC service delivery by supporting MOH to develop and implement a more coherent approach to purchasing that draws from the experience of ongoing results-based financing (RBF) and voucher projects, and leverages the full range of public and private health facilities in the country
