“Quiet corruption” is a new concept, which has not yet been accurately identified by government or non-government organizations. The World Bank defines quiet corruption as a lack of services usually involving malpractice in health clinics and absentee teachers in the education sector. According to the World Bank, the familiar form of corruption is just the “tip of the iceberg,” while “quiet corruption” is below the surface and far more insidious. Consequences for ‘quiet corruption’ are far less severe or go completely unnoticed, however, the impact on the poor communities is widespread and far more damaging.
