After publication of the article , it has been brought to our attention that the analytical categories used in the first part of the discussion section, developed by Lara Gautier , was not cited. Furthermore, work of Barnes et al.  is now cited in the paragraph related to the PBF policy.
The authors would like to update the following paragraphs to refer to her work .
We should note that apart from Rwanda, many other countries in Sub-Saharan Africa like Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania and Zambia were implementing or adopting PBF approach, and were seen as “flagship countries”  or innovators in such reforms.

The first form of influence was financial .
The second form of influence refers to ideation .
