Compliance and digitalisation: How technology can foster transparency in African countries

How can governments and the private sector apply digital technologies to enhance transparency and integrity? This report looks at examples of digital solutions that contribute to better governance in African countries.

Two fields of applications are the focus of this report: public procurement, company registries and payments. In these areas, technological innovation can be applied to empower citizens, build trust in the integrity of processes, cut red tape and reduce corruption risks.

The report examines two country case studies in more detail: first, it looks at Kenya, which introduced electronic procurement in 2014 and is seen as a global innovation leader in mobile payments. Second, the report covers Ghana, where the Alliance for Integrity has promoted a business-driven, multi-stakeholder approach seeking to improve transparency and integrity in the economic system, and where the government has committed to open up public contracting.

The findings of this report are based on desk research and 18 interviews conducted with representatives of the private sector, government bodies, donors, think tanks and civil society activists in Nairobi and Accra in November 2017

National pharmaceutical procurement and supply chain institutions: Report

Examples of national pharmaceutical procurement and supply chain institutions were identified through rapid search and input from experts. Institutions identified were largely from Africa. Up-to-date details of the governance of these institutions was not easy to find within the scope of this work. The resources in the annotated bibliography of this report include grey literature and media articles to give some information where strong evidence in this area is lacking. This overview highlights some of the findings on institutions from different countries.

West Africa Open Contracting Assessment Project

The purpose of this report by Development Gateway is to support scoping studies on open contracting in West Africa and to identify  potential British interests and priorities in the region. The goal for this project was to gauge the state of openness of public procurement processes in five West African countries (Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Liberia and Guinea) and to identify opportunities for procurement reform  and the adoption of Open Contracting Principles.

This paper looks specifically at international (and especially British) company interests in these five markets. They analysed third party surveys and indices of the corruption environment, especially around public  procurement, and have conducted our own interviews of 17 companies with a long-term commitment to, and knowledge of, these markets.

Public Spending on Health: A Closer Look at Global Trends

The World Health Organization 2018 global health financing report presents health spending data for all WHO Member States between 2000 and 2016 based on the SHA 2011 methodology. It shows a transformation trajectory for the global spending on health, with increasing domestic public funding and declining external financing. This report also presents, for the first time, spending on primary health care and specific diseases and looks closely at the relationship between spending and service coverage.
