About us

 

Transparency International (TI) is the world’s leading independent anti-corruption organisation. We work towards creating a world where people’s lives, government, business and society are free from corruption.  Our vision is a world where our institutions can better support the people they are intended for, and where we can trust the integrity of those in authority and in business, and where there is no impunity for the corrupt at home or abroad.

The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the lack of transparency and potential for corruption in health systems around the world. Every day, around the world, people suffer and die as a consequence. For some, the only access to treatment is by paying bribes. Others receive bogus, unsafe or ineffectual treatments, while billions earmarked by governments are wasted on corrupt and opaque procurement of medicine, services and health care facilities.

Even before the pandemic, corruption took a huge toll on global health care. Of the $7.5trillion spent globally on health, the WHO estimated $500bn was lost to corruption every year.  That is more than enough to achieve healthcare for all – a key United Nations commitment.  That figure is likely to have soared in the wake of Covid-19.

The Transparency International Global Health Programme works with partners around the world to ensure effective, accountable and transparent health systems which leave no room for corruption.

Our work focuses on ensuring transparency in:

  • the ongoing COVID vaccine rollout
  • Research and Development of new technologies and drugs
  • Procurement and allocation of resources
  • Health care delivery

With Covid-19 having made the case for tackling corruption in the health sector like never before, TI-UK is recruiting for a part-time senior communications officer to work with our Global Health team.
