The World Health Organisation WHO defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. International agencies state that corruption exists where persons abuse the power that is entrusted to them in order to benefit personally.

We must expand on the wordings in some of our current legislation, including the Corruption Prevention Act, to capture the notions of corruption that include the exploitation of women, political advantage, economic privileges, and social benefits.
We should create a specific body which should be given the legal authority to address and pursue all matters of corruption in our society.
Also, we should all talk more about this issue and target, in particular, our various communities across our island, to raise awareness about the rights and responsibilities of citizens and how they may access channels in seeking redress against the various forms of corruption.
