ABSTRACT The study investigated corruption and health care service delivery in Buvuma district, Uganda, it was guided by the following objectives, To assess perceptions of corruption in process of receiving health services, To determine factors driving corruption in health service delivery in Buvuma District, To assess the quality or levels of health service delivery in Buvuma District and To examine the relationship between corruption and health service delivery in Buvuma District. This study employed a cross-sectional research design. The study population was 71 respondents who were chosen from the leadership structure of Buvuma District and directly mandated to manage health care service delivery who will include, Health departmental leaders, staff civil society organizations, youth groups and community based organization. A sample size of (60 people) was selected from the study population of (71) respondents using Krejcie & Morgan, (1970). The study made the following Conclusions, It is apparent that most local government authorities are not functional. With the exception of few local governments in the country, others are mere shadow of themselves. Monitoring systems specifically looked for evidence of overcharging, informal payment, ghost patients, and inflation of statistics, and used this information to address specific problems and make systematic changes. Fighting corruption is a complex undertaking, but there are things policy makers and citizens can do to prevent corruption. These corruption types can be prevalent in both high-income and low-and middle-income countries. Regulators in all health systems must implement measures to minimise the risks of prevalent types of corruption in healthcare service delivery. The study recommended that the local governments in Uganda should be scrapped. The circumstance that has characterized poor service delivery at the grass root in Nigeria has been a colossal tales of one corrupt case to the other. The Financial Crime regulatory institutions should conclude all the outstanding financial fraud cases on the past district bosses that are all over the courts in Buvuma district. This would help to some extent serve as a guide to upcoming politicians whom would be at the helms of affairs. Stringent measures should be taken to deal with corrupt health workers who are caught in one corrupt act or the other so that they can serve as deterrence to other potential perpetrators in the health sector. Avenues within the public hospitals that encourage corruptions should be curbed by making sure that receipts are issued and payments made at the appropriate quarters.
