Adopting a peer-led approach to disseminate anti-corruption messages: Results of the network survey
This report relates to the research project Addressing bribery in the Tanzanian health sector: A behavioural approach. As part of the project, a pilot behavioural intervention was implemented at a Tanzanian hospital that aimed to shift hospital users’ and health providers’ attitudes and perceived social norms around gift-giving. It also aimed to reduce actual exchanges of gifts.
The report complements the final technical report from the project, Using behavioural insights to reduce gift giving in a Tanzanian public hospital, by providing details about the use of social network analysis (SNA) to assess how the information about the intervention was disseminated through the hospital.
It provides a breakdown of results, the questionnaire used in the surveys, and methodological notes for future studies.
The research project as a whole was funded by the Global Integrity Anti-Corruption Evidence Programme (GI-ACE), funded with UK aid from the UK government. The project implementation was a collaboration between the Basel Institute on Governance, the UK Behavioural Insights Team, the University of Dar es Salam and the University of Utrecht.
