ABSTRACT

The study used quantitative and qualitative research methods to investigate the quality of

service delivery by the MVA Fund and MoHSS through EMRS bases in Namibia. The

positivist research strategy was used for the quantitative non-experimental research

survey that includes the gathering and analysis of quantitative data. The sample of the

study consisted of 20 respondents, of which 10 were from the EMRS bases (Windhoek,

Omuthiya and Usakos bases) and 10 were key informants, representing different key

institutions (MVA Fund, Ministry of Health and Social Services, Namibian Police,

National Road Safety Council and Roads Authority). The study focused on the analysis

of the quality of service delivery by EMRS bases in Namibia. The study also attempted to

determine whether there are factors that negatively affect service delivery by the MVA

Fund. The study also analysed the current management strategies and policies of the

MVA fund in a bid to determine alternative management strategies needed to mitigate the

current service delivery challenges.

The independent variable used in this study was service delivery and the critical

dependent variables that affect service delivery were analysed. The responses to all items

were classified and tabulated in different categories using the IBM SPSS 21 software.

The coded data were analysed by means of the One-Way Anova at the 5% level of

significance in order to determine the relationships among the variables. Significant

relationships were identified and interpreted accordingly. In addition, the results of the

study were compared with the findings established through literature analysis in order to

find out if the current results are in line with what theory says.

The major findings indicate that there is much that needs to be done by MVA Fund and

MoHSS in the management of EMRS basis so as to improve service delivery. The study

concluded that lack of key pieces of legislation reduces confidence when providing

services to clients, hence this may lead to poor service delivery. The study also

established that the delays experienced in getting patients to medical facilities also

indicate poor service delivery and this negatively affects customer satisfaction.

The research recommends that more needs to be done in order to improve service

delivery by MVA Fund. It also recommends that further research should be carried out to

relevant for the achievement of the objectives of MVA Fund.
