Dual practice in Uganda

Dual practice in Uganda has had both positive and negative impacts for health service providers and consumers. How did the government manage this?

Think about the state of dual practice in your country (if you don’t know who does it and how/whether it is regulated, do a little reading to find out).

Are the current policy settings appropriate? If health workers are “neither angels nor robots” (in other words, are not just motivated by altruism, and do not just follow instructions), what other factors does your health system address that might affect how health workers decide between public and private sector opportunities? Does it consider non-financial and non-regulatory approaches to managing dual practice?
