The workshop will include presentations on the Argentina Plan Nacer experience, Belize Pay for Performance program, and Burundi’s Performance Based Financing approach. Participants will also engage in group work and case study discussions to raise challenges and opportunities for RBF approaches in Dominica’s health sector.In support of the RBF workshop and to provide the World Bank team with a better understanding of the challenges faced at the different health service delivery levels in Dominica, the Ministry of Health organized site visits for the World Bank team to visit the Princess Margaret Hospital and Type I and Type III Health Centres throughout Dominica. The workshop is the first activity of the RBF program and will be followed by a situational analysis to further explore how to effectively apply RBF approaches in the health sector. It will also include study tours visits to countries implementing good practice RBF approaches relevant to Dominica’s context, and the development of a country work plan to support further exploring an RBF approach for the health sector. Meanwhile a World Bank Mission team led by Carmen Carpio, Health Specialist, arrived in Dominica on January 23, 2012 to provide technical assistance in support of the Dominica health sector. The mission will consist of two main activities which include discussing and exploring opportunities for results-based financing (RBF) approaches in Dominica’s health sector and assessing the Health Information System. Results-Based Financing (RBF) for Health is a tool used for increasing the quantity and quality of health services. It combines the use of incentives for health-related behaviours with a strong focus on results, and can support efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).A follow-on visit by the World Bank team will take place in February to focus on the health information system (HIS). This visit will build on the RBF workshop and assess the stage of development of the HIS and identify opportunities for supporting potential RBF approaches and regional reporting on common health indicators across the OECS.

Supergiant seal play-off berth

first_imgRISING Pune Supergiant dismissed Kings XI Punjab for just 73 as they sealed an Indian Premier League play-off berth.Kings XI Punjab slumped to their lowest-ever Indian Premier League total as they missed out on a play-off spot to the benefit of Rising Pune Supergiant, who claimed a nine-wicket win.Supergiant’s defeat to Delhi Daredevils in the last match made their final regular-season game with Kings XI, who went into the contest trailing Pune by just two points, into a de-facto play-off for the last top-four berth.Defeat for Supergiant, whose time in the competition will come to an end after this season, would have made Sunday’s meeting their final one in the IPL.But a dismal collapse from Kings XI left Supergiant needing just 74 to win, and they promptly chased down that scant total in just 12 overs, finishing second to set up a Qualifer 1 clash with Mumbai Indians, who topped the table.Kings XI got off to the worst possible start when they lost opener Martin Guptill for a first-ball duck, and they had only added 19 to the total by the time Shaun Marsh (10) holed out to Australia teammate Steve Smith.An excellent direct hit from man-of-the-match Jaydev Unadkat ran out Eoin Morgan for just two, and the sixth over proved a nightmare one for Kings XI as Shardul Takur accounted for both Rahul Tewatia (4) and Glenn Maxwell (0).Wriddhiman Saha (13) had been a rare constant for Kings XI but his stay came to an end when he nicked Dan Christian (2-10) to MS Dhoni.It was Christian who struck again to remove Axar Patel (22) – the only Kings XI batsman to top 20 runs – and the tail was quickly cleaned up by Unadkat (2-12) and Adam Zampa (2-22) – the visitors bowled out with 25 deliveries to spare.Rahul Tripathi was the only man to fall for Pune in their reply, losing his wicket after hitting 28 off 20. However, Ajinkya Rahane (34 not out) and Smith (15 not out) guided Supergiant home with ease. (Sportsmax)last_img read more
