Comparative Law IV: Health Care Corruption

Interesting report from Wednesday's Jurist:

Transparency International [official website], an international corruption watchdog group, said Wednesday in its 2006 Global Corruption Report [report materials; press release, PDF] that malfeasance in both private and public sector health care systems around the world was rampant and that it included increased production of counterfeit drugs and bribery and extortion in health care management. The report recommends public access to and independent audits of health care budgets and policies; codes of conduct for health workers and private sector companies and provide ongoing anti-corruption training; independent health care monitoring at the national and international level; and rigorous prosecution of offenders. The study addresses general and financial corruption in particular countries and provides special updates on the US, including campaign finance reform, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and Congressional ethics.
