Abstract

There are several myths about the impact of decentralization of health care governance. These include a worsening of regional inequalities, greater privatization of health care, greater inefficiency resulting from duplication of managerial activities such as human resource policies, and lower productivity. These myths have partly arisen from a lack of rigorous assessments of the effects of decentralization.
