Health workers in impoverished, mountainous provinces in northern Viet Nam have been earning higher salaries from an experimental pay-for-performance model that aims to enhance the performance of community health centres (CHCs) and well-being of area residents.

The model, called performance-based financing (PBF), creates incentives for health workers in order to enhance the productivity, scope and quality of work at health facilities.

According to project managers, on average, employees of participating CHCs in the two northern provinces of Cao Bang and Bac Kan have been earning individual performance rewards that equate to between 14 to 25 per cent of their regular Government salaries.
