Faith, Development, and the Choice of Service Provider
Chapter Chapter 1 in The Economics of Faith-Based Service Delivery, 2015, pp 7-33 from Palgrave Macmillan
Abstract This book aims to contribute to better empirical evidence and knowledge about the contribution of FIIs to service delivery in healthcare and education in sub-Saharan Africa, with more in-depth work on Ghana and Burkina Faso. It is also hoped that the findings from the book will have broader relevance for work on faith and development more generally. In order to hint at this relevance and outline the conceptual framework that informs the book, this first chapter is devoted to a discussion of a few “big picture” items related to broad trends that affect the worlds of faith and development policy, and their interaction. The chapter consists of three main sections.
