It compromises the availability, accessibility, acceptability, and quality of health services, and ultimately threatens people’s lives. The prevalence of corruption in health systems moves us further away from achieving Universal Health Coverage, and in times of health emergencies, compromises global health security.
On 2 November 2023, the U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre will host a seminar to debate these issues with seven experts in the fields of health and anti-corruption.
