Reporter Sorious Samura visits Uganda and his home country of Sierra Leone to reveal how aid money is lost, stolen and frittered away.
He stops at a showpiece hospital, run by a well-funded health department, that looks like a warzone This year alone the international community has given Uganda's healthcare sector over half a billion dollars, but a visit to Mulago Hospital in Kampala shows that not enough of the money is getting through.
Entering the hospital, where over 50% of the patients are HIV positive, Samura is greeted by shocking scenes in which the sick and injured lie on the blood-spattered floor alongside discarded needles.
In the maternity ward, where about 80 babies are born every night and about 20 caesarean operations carried out by one surgeon in one operating theatre, newborn babies and their mothers lie on the filthy floor surrounded by blood.
Staff at Mulago Hospital tell our reporter that they struggle to get even the most basic supplies, such as gloves and the analgesic Paracetamol.
But a trip to the car park at Uganda's Ministry of Health shows that money is being spent - just on other things. The ministry has bought 1,800 4x4 vehicles for its staff, but only four ambulances for Mulago Hospital. Yet its car park is home to dozens of new 4x4s for ministry staff.
Africa do pay a heavy price because of corruption in the continent. As Samura reports, that is definitely true of Sierra Leone where he sees firsthand the selling of stolen aid supplies.
On sale in Freetown's pharmacies are mosquito nets and medicines from Unicef and the World Health Organization. These are supplied to the Government in Sierra Leone and are meant to be handed out to the country's vulnerable children free of charge.
