Corruption in the health sector can be a matter of life and death, especially for poor people in developing countries. In China, an estimated 192,000 people died of fake drugs in 2001 alone. An IMF study across 71 countries showed that countries with high incidences of corruption have higher infant mortality rates, even after adjusting for income, female education, health spending and urbanisation.
