The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) is planning to publish a report on the scope and character of corruption in Kenya’s health sector that is based on an investigation by the anti-graft organization.
The EACC has invited each county secretary as well as the Health CEC members to the report’s launch on May 17.
The Senate, National Assembly, Ministry of Health, Health Reporters and Editors, and Medical Schools at Universities will all contribute more participants.
Other development partners including the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) have also been invited.
The primary goal of the survey, which was carried out in conjunction with the EACC and the UNODC, was to spot corrupt practices during the pre-, tender-, and post-tender phases of healthcare projects.
The survey’s results, according to the agency’s letter to county secretaries, which was signed by CEO Twalib Mbarak, reveal important information that will support the government’s efforts to improve the effectiveness, accountability, and transparency of Kenya’s healthcare system.
Following at least two EACC surveys in which the Health Ministry was ranked as the second most corrupt in the nation, the report was released shortly after.
In nearly all counties, the bulk of complaints particularly mention problems with procurement and finance system management.
