Title: UGANDA’S MINIMUM HEALTH CARE PACKAGE: RATIONING WITHIN THE MINIMUM?
Authors: Ssengooba, Freddie
Issue Date: 31-Dec-2004
Publisher: Department of Health Sciences of Uganda Martyrs University

Abstract: Essential/minimum health care packages (MHCP) have appeared on the primary health care scene as a means of setting priorities for national health budgets. A technical approach of cost-effectiveness was sought to guide the political and group bargaining approaches. In Uganda, the application of the cost-effectiveness techniques seem not to have had an effect on the priority setting. A package of minimum services that is written into the sector plan has turnout to be more then the resources available in the medium term. At the operational level, the delivery of the minimum package has been rendered ineffective and inefficient, by trying to attain universal access with $ 8 per capita instead of $28. System capacity constraints for effective and equitable delivery of the MCHP are traced at the infrastructure-based planning and in explicit and implicit re-prioritization and rationing within the minimum package.
