Improved Service Delivery in the Absence of Fully-Fledged District Management Structures:Experience of the Greater Tzaneen Sub-District Mopani District -Limpopo Province
Health Systems Trust
This report highlights the achievements of the Greater Tzaneen Sub-District (former Halegratz District) in improving health care delivery without a fully-fledged Sub-District Management Team. The aim of the report is not to play down the importance of DMTs, but rather to emphasise that motivated and commitment task teams can bring significant improvement in delivery of the health care services. The Greater Tzaneen Sub-Districts success depended on Quality of Care Task Teams, which were guided by an Interim Sub-District Manage-ment Team (Sub-DMT) that did not have the authority described above.
