Making the case for open contracting in healthcare procurement
By Transparency International
This new report by the Transparency International Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare program “Making the case for open contracting in healthcare procurement” examines the utility of open contracting in healthcare procurement based on case studies from Honduras, Nigeria and Ukraine. The process relies on governments to disclose procurement information to businesses and civil society improves stakeholders’ understanding of procurement processes increasing the integrity, fairness and efficiency of public contracting.
In several countries, including Honduras, Nigeria and Ukraine, corruption was significantly reduced throughout the healthcare procurement process following the implementation of open contracting, according to the report.
We would like to thank the Omidyar Network, the Open Contracting Partnership and the Crown Agents Foundation for their generous financial support to make this research possible.
