Thank you very much for your comment and question. In the case of Cameroon, the health facilities that were randomized in one of the control groups will receive the full PBF package (potentially adapted and fine-tuned based on the impact evaluation results) after 2 years. This is planned and budgeted. I agree with your point that this might create some “anticipation bias”, but in such randomized phase-ins, it is unavoidable that the control facilities will be aware of the program and of the fact that they are scheduled for the next phase. Given that, we think that having the entire process, including the randomization, being explained and performed in public builds support for the impact evaluation by showing it is fair and transparent.
