Contribution of Religious Entities to Health
CONTRIBUTION OF RELIGIOUS ENTITIES TO HEALTH IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA
ARHAP was commissioned by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to conduct a sub-Saharan study of health services provided by religious communities (2007-2008). The focus was on describing the services provided, their 'comparative advantage', the way they network and collaborate with each other and the public health system, and specific recommendations on funding of these services. A desk review of existing literature complimented in-depth case studies in Zambia, Uganda and Mali.
