Ghana Scores Average Mark On 2020 Corruption Perceptions Index

Ghana has scored an average mark of 43 out of 100 on the 2020 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) released by Transparency International.

This left the country being ranked 75 out of 180 nations captured in the 2020 index.

The CPI draws upon 13 data sources which capture the assessment of experts and business executives on a number of corrupt behaviours in the public sector.

It uses a scale of zero which represents highly corrupt to 100 which is very clean.

Ghana gained 2 points compared to its scores of 41 and 40 from the previous two years.

The index noted that, persistent corruption was undermining health care systems and contributing to democratic backsliding amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

It indicated that the countries performing well on the index invest more in health care and are better able to provide universal health coverage “and are less likely to violate democratic norms and institutions or the rule of law.
