The 1997 local government Act ushered in a system of decentralization to ease service delivery among the citizens in the country. Among the decentralized was fiscal decentralization. This made it possible for local governments to collect their own revenue and decide on which priority areas to spend it on. Indeed, urban centers unlike rural areas have many services of taxation which gives them an advantage over rural areas in the delivery of services (health services). However, in spite of the above, we still witness poor health service delivery in Makindye East. For example, we still get reports of mothers dying in labour of the health centers or hospitals in this division. It is on this basis that the researcher decided to carryout research to find out, whether health service delivery is hindered by poor tax money or whether there are others involved responsible for poor health service delivery.
