The outcome of the RBL program will be quality of health care improved, measured by (i) amenable deaths for chronic conditions reduced; (ii) in-hospital mortality for acute myocardial infarction reduced; and (iii) hospitalization rate for ambulatory care sensitive conditions reduced. The program will have the following outputs: (i) infrastructure and equipment to provide quality health services improved; (ii) capacity and organization for quality of care strengthened; and (iii) quality improvement interventions and monitoring institutionalized.
Disbursement-linked indicators (DLIs) may include (i) amenable deaths for chronic conditions reduced; (ii) in-hospital mortality for acute myocardial infarction reduced; (iii) health facilities upgraded or constructed and equipped with consideration of climate-resilience and gender responsiveness; (iv) institutional structure and leadership, including for female leaders, for quality of care strengthened; (v) availability of qualified health workers improved; (vi) gender- and climate-responsive quality of care standards and improvement tools piloted in selected number of marzes (regional administrative entities) and approved for nationwide scale-up; and (vii) health facilities reporting quality indicator data on time.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
