Abstract

This entails an inquiry on the impact of petty corruption on health sector performance in Kinondoni Municipality in Tanzania. The study was guided by three hypotheses which have been developed to be tested on health sector performance in Tanzania which were favoritism, unethical practices and unfair treatment. The study was performed using explanatory study design using causality testing approach in ensuring knowledge gathering and creation in filling the study gap. Data were specifically collected in Mwananyamala Hospital from both the health service providers and the patients as the beneficiaries of the services using the questionnaire. The information as facts to generate knowledge were assembled and computed in SPSS for generation of analytical tools to present the data. Descriptive statistics were first generated to show the profile of the respondents. Moreover, correlation and multiple regression analysis was performed to show the existing relationship between study variables. The results as findings were certain and clear that all three study hypotheses were positive and significant statistically on health sector performance. This shows that health sector performance in Tanzania is negatively affected by petty corruption through favoritism, unethical practices and unfair treatment. The study further recommends that the government must first work on the needs and wants of the health practitioners pertaining to their salaries conditions and situations that once they are well improved, the issue of petty corruption may be largely washed away since they practice that as a result of the personal situations as work place.
