Policy Brief: The Hidden Barriers to Equitable Access – Tackling Corruption in the COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout

This policy brief builds upon the evidence gathered by Transparency International Global Health (TIGH) Programme and partners in Bangladesh, Uganda, and Zambia indicating three hidden barriers for equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines – corruption, lack of transparency, and misinformation. Further details about the research can be found in the report “Transparency and corruption in COVID-19 vaccine deployment: Evidence from Bangladesh, Uganda, and Zambia”. 

The policy brief provides recommendations for Multi- and Bilaterals, Foundations, Governments, Non-Government Organizations and Civil Society on how to address these hidden barriers in order to achieve comprehensive and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines going forward.  

This research was made possible with funding from the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
