EXTREME CORRUPTION PERSISTS IN SOUTH AFRICA’S AILING HEALTH SECTOR

On 22 July, an article in Business Day in South Africa says that public health facilities are crippled by a variety of corrupt employment and procurement practices as well as misappropriation of scarce resources. It refers to a just-published report from watchdog Corruption Watch and saying that it had received almost 700 reports of corruption relating to the health sector. It refers to absenteeism, allegations of nepotism and favouritism as well as the appointment of unsuitable candidates with no accountability for employment decisions.
