A study done across 33 countries is able to show us the amount of corruption in healthcare across the world. Firstly, there are many different types of corruption in the healthcare system. The types are Absenteeism (when public sectors receive less care), informal payments (when people pay informally to hopefully get benefits, not treating equally), fraud, and mismanagement of resources and theft of supplies. These are all issued in all countries that have been studied. There are, however, ways to try and combat these issues. Social accountability, transparency in pricing, social accountability mechanisms, and hiring of outside individuals with no ties can all help to create change. This will take a lot of work but it is a possibility in the future.
