This book draws the link between the fight against corruption and the right to health. States are under a duty to fight corruption in the health sector. Whereas Uganda has put in place a regulatory framework that address corruption generally, the absence of a specific law or policy addressing corruption in the health sector waters down its efforts as regards its obligations the right to health. The general approach neglects the unique status of corruption in the health sector book and barely contains the right remedies to address the problem. The book makes recommendations to the Uganda Law Reform Commission Parliament of Uganda, to develop and pass respectively pass a comprehensive law that addresses corruption in the health sector. It also makes recommendations to the Ministry of Health to initiate the process for a comprehensive law and to come up with health sector specific anti corruption laws.
