Multimedia type

This is a short film produced by Marie Stopes International, GPRBA's implementing partner for the Uganda Reproductive Health Voucher program.

The project provided subsidized vouchers to women in Uganda for a package of birthing services at clinics, services supplied by skilled medical practitioners. It also provided subsidized vouchers to couples for HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. A total of 137,964 vouchers were sold, including 106,306 Safe Delivery vouchers and 31,658 STD vouchers. Vouchers were introducted for the first time in a healthcare context in the World Bank's Africa region, creating a unique opportunity to capture and share new lessons in healthcare.
