Combating Corruption in Global Health

In the past 20 years, the international community has begun to fully recognize the devastating effect of corruption on global health. Poor governance, marked by weak institutions, absence of rule of law, and lax enforcement of health policy, creates conditions for corruption to thrive. This can contribute to health system failure and deprive citizens of access to even basic health services. This paper explores the extent of corruption in health services, as well as  emerging anti-corruption tools and inter-agency frameworks that could prove effective in limiting corruption in global health. While corruption has gained attention in the international sphere, more action is needed in the specific context of global health. This paper was co-written by Maureen Lewis (CEO of Aceso Global), Tim K. Mackey, Jillian Kohler and Taryn Vian.
