Uganda was one of the most promising developing countries south of the Sahara, particularly in relation to service delivery. The positive trend was reversed with succeeding regimes that were marked with over centralization - creating a dependence syndrome and leading to deterioration in service delivery - (World Bank, 1992). NGOs have been instrumental in filling up the gaps. With the advent of the National Resistance Movement regime, multi-lateral agencies, NGOs both external and indigenous flourished. The regime is devoted to reversing the situation particularly through decentralization and promotion of participatory development. The paper focuses on NGO approaches to health and water services delivery under decentralization with special focus on participation.
