Specialized Training "Sectoral Corruption Risk Management in Palestine"

Specialized Training "Sectoral Corruption Risk Management in Palestine"

Amman, Jordan, 5/7/2023 - 5/9/2023

Organized by: UNDP ACIAC and UNDP PAPP

Improving the governance of the health sector and protecting it from risks of corruption is an integral part of the efforts towards achieving sustainable development. SDG 3 of Agenda 2030 emphasized the importance of ensuring a healthy life and promoting well-being for all. The plan also highlighted the relationship between SDG 3 and the rest of the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those related to eradicating poverty, ensuring access to clean water and sanitation for all, promoting gender equality, and reducing inequality within and between countries. On this basis, the lack of transparency and accountability in this sector and the existence of corruption can lead to dire consequences for development which require attention as an integral part of any sectoral reform efforts. In this context, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is organizing a specialized training from 7 to 9 May 2023 in Amman, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan entitled “Sectoral Corruption Risk Management”, in cooperation between its UNDP Palestine and the regional project on “Anti-Corruption and Integrity in Arab Countries” which is implemented in partnership with the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). The training provides a starting point to implementing Sectoral Corruption Risk Management in the health sector and a step to establish similar initiatives in other sectors. The training will be attended by representatives of the Palestinian Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC), Ministry of Health, Ministry of Finance, and the State Audit Administrative Control Bureau, in addition to specialized international and regional experts. The training begins with an overview of efforts to prevent and combat corruption in Palestine and the relevant regional context, with focus on the health sector. This is followed by introducing the Sectoral Corruption Risk Management methodology developed by UNDP, then training participants on applying it through practical exercises from the health and finance sectors. The training concludes with a discussion on the best ways to implement the methodology and the necessary steps forward.
