Briefing note on local government health service financing and expenditure and moving towards monitoring equity in local government health services
Step-by-step approach to implementing an effective transport management system.Transport is not only an expensive resource, but is also critical to effective health care delivery. A lack of transport and the poor use of existing vehicles can lead to problems such as poor supplies of drugs to clinics, inadequate supervision of clinic staff, difficulties in referring patients between facilities, infrequent visits to schools by the school health team, and a lack of community outreach health services or mobile clinic services. The ISDS experience suggests that it is imperative for district health services to focus on developing good management for transport.
