Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to study the relationship between rewards, and performance of Health Centre IV workers in greater Mbarara District. The constructs of rewards include; salary, performance bonus, recognition and promotion. This study used cross-sectional, explanatory and correlational approaches. Health center IV workers data were collected by means of a questionnaire survey from a sample of 200 health workers from 11 health centres from greater Mbarara district. Structural equation modelling was used to test the hypotheses. Results show that rewards significantly affect health workers’ performances. Therefore, once health centres IV have appropriate reward strategies for their health workers in health facilities, they are likely to work hard by meeting deadlines, being available at their work station and they would eventually enhance on job performance. It is further recommended that all health policy makers and implementators at both Ministry of health and central government should always emphasize the general wellbeing of all health workers in every health facility.
