Transparency International Lithuania, established on 6th June of 2000, is a division of the international organisation Transparency International. TI Lithuania was founded by the Open Society Fund Lithuania. TI Lithuania is a non-political organisation that co-operates and coordinates its activities with governmental and non-governmental institutions in both Lithuania and abroad.
TI Lithuania runs a professionalism campaign, #BeChange, in partnership with healthcare partners.
The aim is to encourage medical practitioners to sign a declaration committed to improving the transparency and effectiveness of the healthcare system.
As part of the campaign, practitioners are invited to attend workshops and forums before signing the declaration.
A programme of national will culminate in a celebratory rally on the eve of Lithuanian Medical Workers' Day, where practice promise to uphold their pledge.
The idea of Campaign was born in 2018 to emphasize the importance of trust, which was found to be lacking amongst patients and patient groups.
The campaign also services to encourage politicians and health care executives to strengthen the integrity and accountability of healthcare institution.
An electronic platform, www.bukpokytis.lt, is available for practitioners to make their a pledge and access information about transparency and effectiveness of the healthcare system.
TI Lithuania launched a social design experiment "Vitamin Lab" to see if changing clinic’s environment indirectly affects the behaviour and attitudes of patients, increase transparency and reduce bribery.
Vitamin Lab featured an interactive installation that TI Lithuania created with the community of Lazdynai Outpatient Clinic. Installed in the clinic’s waiting area, every patient was invited to evaluate his/her visit and indicate how smoothly the procedures went, how clear the doctor was when prescribing medication, what the overall impression of the visit was, would they be willing to say thank you to their doctor.
Patients expressed their feedback by distributing five yellow tokens into different categories of evaluation e.g. procedures were clear; communication was pleasant; I did not like it.
