Civic organizations can monitor excesses and corruption within health institutions …
Monitoring by civil society does not relate only to individual services. It also has a role in monitoring health systems, both in conditions of dominant state provision and under conditions of public-private mix. Where the state has a substantive monopoly in service provision, it can be subject to a range of corrupt activities and other threats to quality and public interest. Administrative mechanisms can control this pressure to some extent, for example by separating payment from service delivery. Civic monitoring is also useful to counter excesses and corruption.
