THE OPEN CONTRACTING FOR HEALTH PROJECT

A DFID funded, multi-country project, Open Contracting for Health is facilitating open contracting to boost the integrity, fairness and efficiency of public contracting and ensure the better use of scarce public funds in health.

When procurement goes wrong, the quality of health services decreases and in many countries citizens end up paying for their health out-of-pocket. Corruption in health procurement can result in medicines shortages, inflated drug prices and the infiltration of falsified and substandard medicines into the health system

Open contracting is the practice of publishing and using accessible procurement cycle information to ensure that the vast sums of public money are spent honestly, fairly and effectively.

This approach uses government transparency to foster participation between public bodies, business and civil society and boost the integrity, fairness and efficiency of public contracting.
