Is institutional capacity the major challenge to programe delivery in Sub-Saharan Africa?






The discussion continues in the development business about the challenges faced by public sector programmes in countries thoughout Sub-Saharan Africa, particularly public health  programmes.

In many instances, these challenges are a result of weak institutional capacity of the organisations charged with implementation of development programmes.

The question is therefore, should recipients of development funding  be required, as a pre-funding condition, to structure their grant management and programmes for better service delivery, or would they need more funding in order to do so and thus enter into protracted
donor-recipient engagement on how much funding should be disbursed before more effective governance and management can take place?
