This paper is one of a series of background papers commissioned by WHO for the October, 2011, World Conference on Social Determinants of Health. It describes Rwanda's attempt to improve maternal indicators by pairing a community performance-based financing (CPBF) strategy to empower CHWs with a strategy to incentivize mothers. The pilot intervention was conducted in 31 of Rwanda's poorest health centers; three maternal and child indicators were monitored. Results from the pilot showed significant increases in the number of women accessing antenatal care and delivering at health centers. The combination of demand-side and supply-side incentives is now being scaled up nationally.
