Improvements in an incentive payment system for midwives in India has led to healthier mums and babies.

Through the system, supported by the private sector investment arm of the World Bank, midwives receive cash payments for each baby born in a health centre.

Children delivered by trained medical staff are more likely to survive than those born at home.

Mandeep Pannu has the story of how improvements in the payment system in Binhar, India have resulted in more babies being born in a safer medical environment.
