In collaboration with the Salud Mesoamerica Initiative (SMI), CGD is pleased to invite you to a two-day conference highlighting lessons learned from SMI and how SMI’s experience can inform other programs in the future of healthcare. CGD has worked on results-based financing for years. From analyzing performance-based incentives to exploring cash on delivery aid to improving value for money for the Global Fund and its partners, we have been examining ways to maximize the impact of funding on health outcomes. We now have rigorous evaluations and evidence from SMI, a large-scale results-based funding program. This model public-private partnership allocates funding at the national level based on measurable improvements in coverage and quality of reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child healthcare. It has brought together international donors, a development bank, regional bodies, national governments, and local stakeholders in an innovative partnership that rewards for health system strengthening and increased equity.

El CGD, en colaboración con la ISM, le da la bienvenida a una conferencia de dos días donde se destacan y comparten las lecciones aprendidas del modelo y la experiencia de la ISM, con la esperanza de que puedan resultar inspiradoras y puedan informar futuros programas destinados a fortalecer la atención médica. El Centro Global para el Desarrollo (CGD) ha trabajado durante años en proyectos de financiación basada en resultados. Su experiencia ha incluido el análisis de programas basados en el incentivo por desempeño; la entrega de dinero a cambio del cumplimiento de los programas; y el estudio de fórmulas que maximicen el impacto y los resultados de la financiación de programas de salud. Actualmente, el CGD dispone de evaluaciones rigurosas y evidencia científicas sobre un programa de financiamiento basado en resultados a gran escala: la Iniciativa Salud Mesoamérica (ISM). El modelo de esta asociación pública-privada se basa en la asignación de fondos condicionada a mejoras medibles y verificables en la cobertura y la calidad de la atención médica materna e infantil. Este programa ha reunido a donantes internacionales, un banco de desarrollo, organismos regionales, gobiernos nacionales y agentes locales interesados. Todos ellos forman una asociación innovadora que recompensa el fortalecimiento de los sistemas de salud y el aumento de la equidad.
More than two years after we saw the end of a deadly Ebola epidemic that claimed the lives of over 11,000 people and devastated populations in West Africa, new mechanisms have been pursued to strengthen preparedness efforts, stimulate innovation for new vaccines and therapies, and develop rapid and comprehensive response strategies. But how equipped are we to address new Ebola threats?
This unique conference is designed to convene both the new industrial policy thinkers, who have studied the history of government intervention, and blended finance practitioners, who are involved in setting up the institutions and procedures that will use official development finance to subsidise private enterprise in developing countries. These two communities too often work in isolation and have much to learn from each other.
The conference will combine scholar presentations with high-level policy discussions. Please see the preliminary programme for a list of sessions and speakers, in addition to more details about the conference.
Please join us for this “first of its kind” conference and feel free to share this invitation with your network and encourage your colleagues to attend. We want to reach as many people who work in private sector development as possible.
AidEx is a two day event, which encompasses a conference, exhibition, meeting areas, awards and workshops. Its fundamental aim is to engage the sector at every level and provide a forum for aid & development professionals to meet, source, supply and learn. AidEx was created to help the international aid and development community engage the private sector in a neutral setting, drive innovation and support the ever-growing need for emergency aid and development programmes.
In May 2017 the G20 Ministers of Finance appointed the Eminent Persons’ Group (EPG) on global financial governance, led by the Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore Tharman Shanmugaratnam, to review the governance of the international financial institutions, looking at their coherence and effectiveness in supporting the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, managing capital flows, assessing risks to financial resilience and addressing non-financial threats to growth and stability.

Every year, more than 5 million women, children and adolescents die from preventable conditions, due to a significant financing gap for healthcare for women, children and adolescents, and inadequate incentives for provision and use of quality health services, among other factors. The Global Financing Facility (GFF) in support of Every Woman Every Child is a new approach to sustainable global health financing that is supporting countries’ approaches to financing and investing in the health of their people.
