Paying for Performance in Health: A Guide to Developing the Blueprint helps funders set up a system to financially reward providers or health care users for taking a measurable action (e.g. , for having a facility-based antenatal care visit) or achieving a predetermined performance target (e.g., for ensuring that 85 percent of children under 1 year of age are fully immunized in a provider's catchment area). This Guide facilitates the pay for performance design process by offering country teams a systematic framework for creating a "blueprint" that shows "what can be achieved and how it can be achieved." This tool can be used in a training workshop environment to achieve a draft of the blueprint, which would be finalized following a consultative process in country. Alternatively, it can be used by country stakeholders with facilitated technical assistance from experienced pay for performance implementers.
