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.
Promoting transparency in the health sector
The main aim is to create a better understanding between doctors and patients in order to enhance the quality of service delivery in healthcare clinics.
Lithuanian medical organisations such as Lithuanian Junior Doctors Association, with the support of TI Lithuania and others ran a professionalism campaign called #BeChange.
The goal of the initiative was to encourage medical practitioners to sign a declaration and commit to fostering transparency of the healthcare system. It is also aimed at politicians and healthcare executives to encourage them in strengthening the integrity and accountability of the healthcare sector overall.
An online platform, www.bukpokytis.lt is available for the members of medical community to sign their pledge and access information about transparency 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, increases transparency and reduces bribery.
