Abstract

There have been two major kinds of reforms affecting the rural health services. One is the introduction or expansion of user fees and the other is the devolution of central responsibilities to lower levels of government. This paper reviews the various initiatives towards decentralisation in the formulation of the several World Bank assisted projects in population, health and nutrition with a focus on the problems which may arise in the effective implementation of the policy.
