WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN?
Transparent and accountable governance in Africa is possible. Communities themselves hold the keys to achieving that goal. Our role is to listen, follow their lead, and bring the expertise and ingenuity that best complements theirs.
HOW DO WE HELP?
We believe development works best when communities solve their own problems — when citizens work with their leaders to ensure their needs are met and public commitments are fulfilled. We strive to ensure local actors have the knowledge, skills, abilities and tools to make that a reality.
OUR PROGRAMS WORK
76% OF DRUGS DISAPPEAR BEFORE REACHING PATIENTS IN UGANDA
Corruption often means the poorest are denied access to health care. Child mortality rates in countries with high levels of corruption are about one-third higher than in countries with less corruption, and infant mortality rates are almost twice as high. In 2016, the Citizen Action Platform (CAP) in Uganda, reduced the number of bribes paid to public hospitals in the pilot district by 15%. Today, approximately 55,000 additional children and adults now have access to the care they need to lead healthy lives.
