    [Excerpt from authors] This paper provides an overview of evidence of the effects of incentives on the performance and motivation of independent health professionals and health workers. Incentives are viewed in the context of objectives held by paying agencies or employers. The review defines the nature of economic incentives and of non-financial incentives. Particular attention is paid to the need for developing countries to understand the impacts of health reform measures on incentives.
