dc.titleFinancial Incentives, Efforts, and Performances in the Health Sector: Experimental Evidence from the Democratic Republic of Congo
dc.typeArticle accepté pour publication ou publié
dc.description.abstractenFinancial incentives for service providers are increasingly used in developing countries as atool to maximize the effort and output of public providers. Using a field experiment in theDRC, we evaluate the impact of a fee-for-service mechanism aimed to increase health serviceutilization. We find that, relative to fixed payments, the fee-for-service mechanism slightlydecreased service utilization. We show that these detrimental effects of incentives do notresult from a diminution in workers' efforts, fraud, or switching away from non-incentivizedactions. But workers’ intrinsic motivation decreased and their efforts were evidentlymisplaced, showing that incentivized workers are not always more productive because theymay not understand how to perform.
