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.
