Transparency International Asks Health Care Professionals About Health Care Corruption

Transparency International, the global NGO that studies and fights corruption, seeks information from health care professionals about health care corruption.  The details are in the official announcement below.  If you are a health care professional, please consider responding to this survey. 

Invitation to participate in a corruption in healthcare survey
Transparency International’s health programme has commenced a new research project to identify the major types of corruption in the health sector. We feel that this research piece will contribute to understanding the corruption vulnerabilities in the health sector and ultimately improve the availability and use of health information to hold governments accountable.

This will feed into the World Health Summit in October, where Transparency International has been invited to run the opening session. We'll also be displaying results from the research on our website and will feature interviews with people about their experiences.

As part of our research, we're keen to hear from as many healthcare professionals as possible. This is to enable us to hear about your experiences of corruption and what you consider corruption to be.

At this stage, we do not want to influence your thoughts - more capture them. A survey has gone online and we would be grateful if you could fill it in and distribute to your peers. 

The survey contains ten questions and can be completed in ten minutes. The survey will run until the end of September.

Given the sensitivity of the subject, the survey is anonymous unless you would like to talk to someone about your experience. At the end of the survey there is an option to leave your contact details.

We're looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Best wishes,
