In spite of monumental investments made in global health over the past decades, Universal Health Coverage remains a distant goal. A key factor in this is the presence of pervasive corruption throughout health systems across the globe, diverting already limited resources and creating further barriers for patients’ access.

Join us as Transparency International Health Initiative launches a new report on the corrosive impact of corruption on healthcare service delivery and hear about the important research being conducted by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine into absenteeism and ghost employees in Bangladesh, Nigeria and Tanzania.

Following our key note speakers, experts will join a dynamic discussion looking at the major challenges to the fight against health sector corruption and brainstorm possible solutions, whilst bringing together decision makers, researchers, civil society and students.

Please note this event will also be livestreamed.
