This qualitative review was conducted in March 2013 to evaluate the impact of introducing results-based financing aiming to improve health supply chain performance at Central Medical Store-Central de Medicamentos e Artigos Medicos (CMAM). The intervention linked the disbursement of quarterly funds to specific performance results at CMAM, specifically in the areas of planning, distribution, and warehouse management. The study utilised in-depth interviews and focus group discussions with key informants in Maputo, Mozambique to identify effective elements of the approach, such as improved planning, distribution, and warehouse management practices, while also identifying enabling factors that contributed to positive outcomes. The recommendations provided in the review aim to further enhance supply chain performance, which ultimately contributes to the goal of achieving universal health coverage and ensuring equitable access to quality healthcare services for all.
