Rwanda, which was forced to rebuild its institutions after the 1994 civil war and genocide, began piloting programs in 2001 to give health clinics cash bonuses for meeting certain healthcare objectives, such as immunizing children, and for encouraging people to utilize medical services, such as having pregnant women deliver in a medical facility.
