My wonderful HLS colleague Matthew Stephenson has just launched the Global Anticorruption Blog (GAB). As it happens, his first two posts may be of interest to BOH readers, especially those may be of interest to readers interested in international aid for public health projects, of the sort supported by the Gates Foundation. The first post argues that the extent of corruption in these projects is much larger than the Gates Foundation and others acknowledge. The second post contends that one reason for lowballing of corruption estimates is political: these projects depend substantially on public funding, and political support for health aid may be undercut by candid assessments of the extent of the corruption and fraud problems. Both the posts and the blog are well worth a read.
