It also includes: a foreword by Mary Robinson; detailed assessments of the state of corruption in 45 countries; recommendations for cleaning up the health sector; examples of successes in preventing health-related bribery, fraud and corruption; the latest corruption-related research, including studies on the links between corruption and other global issues, such as pollution, gender and foreign investment.
