About us

Transparency International is a global movement sharing one vision: a world in which government politics, business and the daily lives of people are free of corruption. Transparency International UK is the UK national chapter of this movement. We work with the British government, parliamentarians, civil society and the private sector to tackle corruption at home, addressing the UK’s global corruption footprint and helping multinational companies prevent corruption by operating with integrity. We are also home to two major global programmes tackling corruption in the Defence and Security sector and Global Health on behalf of the wider Transparency International movement.

Transparency International – Defence & Security (TI-DS) is one of TI’s global programmes and is committed to tackling corruption in the global defence and security sector. Located in London and hosted by Transparency International’s UK chapter, the programme works with defence institutions, governments, defence industry, civil society and international organisations worldwide to strengthen transparency, accountability and oversight systems in a traditionally opaque and secretive sector. We contribute to broad-based coalitions and collective action working with reform-minded actors to bring about change.

Transparency International - Global Health (TI GH) is another of TI’s global programmes and works to ensure that health systems around the world are free from corruption, allowing people to access the health care they need. Our work focusses on tackling corruption, and improving transparency at three key points in the health value chain - medical research and development, procurement, and at the point of service delivery.
