The Utkrisht Development Impact Bond aims to improve the quality of care in private health facilities in Rajasthan and thereby improve health outcomes, including maternal and neonatal mortality.
Mathematica works with implementation partners, investors, and outcome funders to verify whether private health facilities in Rajasthan, India meet maternal and neonatal health care quality standards. Mathematica’s assessment of the quality of care in these facilities determines whether payments are sent from outcome funders to investors in the bond.
