There is little literature that specifically compares the two sectors -
Health and Education - to draw out the commonalities and differences
between them. The only paper that searches bring up is a conceptual
discussion which is reviewed in section 2. In terms of sectoral
synergies for service delivery - a significant developmental strategy
which brings the education and health sector together is 'school
Despite the lack of comparative data across the two sectors, a
significant amount of work focuses on the factors that contribute to the
poor performance of each of the sectors. Existing literature also has
much to offer in terms of what is necessary for effective service
delivery in health and education.
Finally, this document covers the issues in a very broad way and does
not provide in-depth information on each of them. Each of the
sub-sections: effective service delivery; political economy; and voice
and accountability include large areas of work, and an in-depth analysis
could yield more.
