In addition, several versions of the e-learning course were tested with a number of subject matter experts (SMEs), Red Cross/Red Crescent National Societies, and humanitarian workers in different organizations all over the world.

The project was managed by Gro Skaaren-Fystro and Anne Signe Hørstad in Transparency International Norway.

Transparency International's Preventing Corruption in Humanitarian Operations handbook is designed to help anyone working in the humanitarian sector identify and prevent corruption risks. Chapters of this handbook are referenced throughout this course as useful further reading.

Most organizations have a Code of Conduct that can be considered a guide for employees and volunteers to support their decision-making on a variety of topics, including corruption. Some organizations might have an additional Gift Policy or Anti-Corruption Policy that cover these topics more specifically. These should be posted on your organization’s web site. We encourage you to revisit them and consider how they relate to your role in identifying and preventing corruption.

You can also find additional courses about corruption prevention on the IFRC's Learning Platform, including a course that is designed for those in supervisory, management and governance roles, but is available to everyone regardless of their existing roles.
