Welcome to the Preventing corruption in humanitarian aid course.  Corruption is a major challenge in humanitarian assistance as it deprives the most vulnerable poor people, the victims of natural disasters and civil conflicts of essential live-saving resources.  This online course will give you an understanding of the problems of corruption through scenario based exercises - your choices have consequences!
