This year's Africa Development Indicators essay sheds light on "quiet corruption" - when public servants fail to deliver services or inputs that have been paid for by the government. The most prominent examples are absentee teachers in public schools and absentee doctors in primary clinics. The report features data and research on quiet corruption in the health, education, and agriculture sectors.
