Contracting and performance incentives

Training and materials

At first sight, it might seem simple to resort to contracting; for some, it's just a matter of finding a standard contract and then adapting it to the situation. However, every analysis undertaken has shown that this is not the case. Successful experience has been experience whose protagonists have adopted a professional approach to building their contractual relations. In contrast, there is considerable experience which, despite its initial promise, has not yielded the expected results; the simple fact is that those responsible lack the necessary expertise.

The adoption of contracting requires skills that actors in the field do not always possess. In order to assist those who wish to adopt the contractual approach with every hope of success, the World Health Organization (WHO) and other institutions now offer training workshops and seminars.
