Abstract

This supplement of the Journal of Ambulatory Care Management on the Brazilian National Program for Improving Access and Quality of Primary Care (PMAQ) reveals a relevant gap in the Brazilian literature on pay for performance/PMAQ, and is therefore an opportunity to bring contributions from global health and public policy to the debate. We discuss the relevant gap in the light of developments in evaluation and policy analysis. We afterward present the state of knowledge regarding global health and public policy in pay for performance, giving attention to diverse themes, methods, types of analyses, theoretical contributions, and limitations. Finally, we suggest some possible implications for research and policy in Brazil.
