Myanmar Strategic Purchasing Brief Series

These six briefs examine the practical considerations in the design and implementation of a strategic purchasing pilot project among private general practitioners (GPs) in Myanmar.

This pilot will start developing the important functions of, and provide valuable lessons around, contracting of health providers and purchasing that will contribute to the broader health financing agenda. More specifically, it is introducing a blended payment system that mixes capitation payments and performance-based incentives to reduce households’ out-of-pocket spending and to incentivize providers to deliver an essential package of primary care services.
