The study mainly focused on: the extent of citizen participation in planning and budgeting for the sector; exploring citizens’ uptake of and perceptions on primary health care services in the context of a devolved system; level of citizens’ satisfaction with the health services; availability of health inputs (human, capital, commodities) in primary health care facilities...en
