On Tuesday, September 25th, join ACE and ACE’s health partners, including LSHTM, for a webinar on ‘Anti-corruption by design: understanding and tackling health system corruption on the road to Universal Health Coverage.’

Corruption is a matter of life and death in the health sector, impeding access, quality of care, financial protection and equity, and disproportionately affecting the poor and vulnerable. Its causes are multi-faceted; they are influenced by factors within and beyond the health sector, and a top-down anti-corruption enforcement approach may not always yield the expected results.

This webinar will introduce different perspectives on corruption and will aim to gathering momentum around the topic.

The webinar is organised by the Health Systems Governance Collaborative.

Date and time:

Tuesday, 25 September 2018, 13.30 – 15.00 CEST (11:30 – 13:00 GMT)
