Sector-specific anti-corruption efforts are widely recommended but rarely implemented at the country level. The Moroccan Central Authority for Corruption Prevention opted for a sector approach, identifying the health sector as a priority.

Sector-specific approaches require the involvement of key stakeholders already at the design stage, and an awareness of potential resistance from affected actors. Roles and responsibilities must be clearly defined, including for overseeing the implementation throughout the process.
