Projects in Africa have varied from preventing misappropriation of malaria medicines to increasing transparency in the local education system. In Cameroon, ASYOUSED applied a successful communication plan by distributing a “Development Corner” newsletter that clearly informed the community of the project’s goals. In Kenya, the ACT! developed regular in-country project monitoring of their efforts to reduce educational sector corruption.
We are currently concluding the pilot phase of the Citizen Action Platform (CAP) in Uganda. The program has had a major impact on reducing corruption at the clinical level and demonstrated workable modalities well suited for reducing corruption at a national scale. Therefore, PTF and ACCU, in partnership with UNICEF’s Ureport program, are planning to expand the program beginning in January 2017, with the goal of national penetration by the end of 2019.
