Public health commodity supply chains are typically weak in low-income countries, partly because they have many disparate yet interdependent functions and components. Approaches to strengthening supply chains in such settings have often fallen short — they address technical weaknesses, but not the incentives that motivate staff to perform better. The authors conclude that the Results-Based Financing (RBF) scheme in Mozambique’s Central Medical Store (CMS), which paid incentives for verified results, steadily improved the central medical store’s performance over 1 year, particularly for supply and distribution planning.
