Building an incorruptible society
Youth and schools are critical to building an awakened citizenry, in particular in building an ethical society. ACC is conducting a 2 week (from May 21) survey as part of its research on integrity and value education in schools. The respondents will be students (classes 7-12) and teachers. This is expected to, among others, help the ACC in the meaningful development of its education and advocacy products and offer an opportunity to the Education Ministry to reflect, redirect and reinforce its value education program in schools (content and delivery). Details will be posted after the survey.
Minimizing corruption through engagement
One the most sustainable strategies of fighting corruption is mainstreaming anti-corruption measures in the system that will entail organic and dynamic organizational good governance processes and ultimately behavioural change of public servants and citizens. In the continuing effort to bring about such a change, 2 ACC teams are in Mongar and Lhuntse Districts to conduct corruption risk management workshops (CRM) (Mongar Referral Hospital – request was made by its management, Mongar and Lhunste District Administration – will be the 1st districts to conduct CRM, where Dzongdags are expected to participate –leadership role is crucial to lend any meaning to it) and advocacy program in the gewogs (blocks) (May 25-June 3). Details will be posted later.
e-learning on ethics and integrity management
This is an ACC-RCSC-RIM initiated project, funded by Danida, in building a public service that espouses high standards of ethics and integrity. 3 TOTs have been conducted till date (for now only confined to civil service) and the focal persons of various agencies are preparing for the launch.
Meanwhile, ACC will start the program for its employees starting May 28 (tentative) (leading by example).
Suspension of doctors
Although there is no legal exception, in view of saving human lives 2 of the 3 doctors will not be suspended.
