May 25: Does Public Reporting Improve the Quality and Performance of Health Care Facilities? A Reanalysis of the 2001 Uganda Yellow Star Program
Speakers: Sebastian Bauhoff and Roxanne Oroxom, Center for Global Development
Discussant: Maureen Lewis, Georgetown University
12:00 -1:30pm
Conference room 7AB

Abstract:
We provide rigorous empirical evidence of the impact of the Uganda Yellow Star program, an early public reporting program aimed at improving the quality of services provided at public health facilities. This program has been widely cited as a success in policy and research reports (Berlan and Shiffman, 2012; Mcnamara, 2006; Molyneux et al., 2012; World Health Organization, 2006) although the available evidence was preliminary and not based on a rigorous assessment. We fill this evidence gap by comparing early and late-adopting districts of Yellow Star by re-examining the facility data used in the earlier reports in a cross-sectional approach. Our findings suggest that Yellow Star is unlikely to have had substantively meaningful impacts on facility quality as measured by the Yellow Star criteria.
