Bringing Health Closer to People - Local Government and District Health System
This book provides information about the process of transformation of local government and what the devolution of health care to local government is likely to mean for the provision of health services. It has been written with health workers and legislators in mind, although it is likely to be of use to a wider audience including local government councillors and NGOs among others.
Legislators have a critical role in overseeing policy implementation and this book will contribute to equipping them to monitor the decentralisation of health care services. As with every major change, it is inevitable that some uncertainty is created. The process of transformation is not yet complete. There are still many areas that remain unclear and many decisions that need to be taken. This book provides a useful interim guide that helps to answer some of the numerous concerns and questions that are frequently being asked about what is happening.
