  • This brief presents a study of local elected leaders and the planning process for health at the decentralized level. The objectives of the study were to understand socio-demographic characteristics of the local elected leaders and their knowledge and attitudes about reproductive health; what local elected leaders and health technicians know of their own and each others’ roles in the context of decentralization; how health planning is carried out since decentralization; and the role civil society representatives play in the health planning process.
