This chapter contextualizes, examines, and analyzes corruption in Africa with an illustrative example of the risks in the health sector. It is based on research observation and lessons learned from field advisory practice and also incorporates interviews with key health sector personnel. Drawing on the literature and best practices in other developing countries, this chapter also offers policy recommendations for managing the corruption risks in the health sector and improving health service delivery and equitable access in Africa. The chapter is also intended to improve on the dearth of analytical literature on corruption at the sectoral level in Africa.
