A new report by the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII) Consortium has revealed that corruption persists in the health and education sectors of the country. According to the report, generally, the perception of corruption exceeds actual experience of the phenomenon at both the sub-national and national levels in the education and health sectors.

The study was launched in Accra by the Country Director, SEND-Ghana George Osei-Bimpeh. The Consortium for the project includes GII, SEND-Ghana and the Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC).
The project was executed with funding from USAID. It sought to ascertain if citizens perceive any cost and impact implication of corruption on their lives and to determine the cost of corruption to citizens regarding access to social services and economic opportunities.
To achieve the objectives, the study employed both quantitative and qualitative methods and surveyed 49 districts in all the ten regions of the country. 34 per cent of respondents admitted to paying bribes, suggesting one in three people who interact with the education sector in Ghana were likely to engage in one form of a corrupt act.
