Data on the level of mortality before and after the study period will be collected. Furthermore, interviews on quality perception of the parents will be carried out before and after the study.

linkedct:summary We observed in a randomised intervention trial in Bissau that mortality due to malaria could be reduced by half by adding a small monetary incentive to the staff and strict follow-up of a standard protocol for available drugs. The Government and donors are not able to sustain such incentives. We intend to evaluate whether strict organisation of a cost recovery system and the use of part of the funds for staff incentives would improve performance of the staff and contribute to reduction of hospital and post-discharge mortality.
