DfID Must Address Corruption That Impacts Poor, Especially Women, Girls, U.K. Aid Watchdog Warns
The Guardian: DfID not doing enough to protect poor from corruption, says aid watchdog
“The U.K.’s Department for International Development (DfID) is failing to address the petty but widespread corruption that blights the daily lives of the world’s poorest people and has a particularly corrosive impact on women and girls, Britain’s aid watchdog has warned. … The report says that women and girls bear the brunt of corruption, as it often limits both their access to justice and their social and economic progress. … Women also lose out, the report adds, when money has to change hands for access to maternal health services and education…” (Jones, 10/30).
