Background on the MSP

The MSP is a research, policy and educational initiative examining the
restructuring of municipal services in South(ern) Africa. The first phase
of the project examined the impacts of decentralization, privatization, cost
recovery and community participation on the delivery of basic services to
the rural and urban poor. The second phase (March 2003 - March 2006) will
continue to explore these service delivery themes and expand the work to
include a closer examination of the health implications of these policy
developments (including public, industrial and mental health). The work
will also expand geographically to include more countries in Southern Africa
as well as selected countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Research partners are the International Labour Resource and Information
Group, Queen's University (Canada), the University of the Witwatersrand, the
South African Municipal Workers Union, the Human Sciences Research Council
of South Africa, Equinet (Harare), and the Canadian Union of Public
Employees. The project is funded in part by the partner organizations and by
the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada. More
