Bribery leads to poorer quality public services, such as hospitals, schools and roads. It also leads to unequal access to these services, because people who can afford to pay a bribe can often access the service sooner. It also undermines the rule of law and so makes communities and whole countries more unstable. It hinders businesses from completing their work.
This tool explains some of the ways that communities can begin to tackle bribery. See Revealing corruption: information for facilitators to understand more about bribery and its impacts, and what the Bible says about bribery.
