Research and campaign to raise awareness about gratuities in maternity care
Thanksgiving project is a joint project with Funky Citizens (Romania) aiming to uncover the reasons and interests behind informal payments prevalent in Hungarian and Romanian maternity care. What is the reason behind paying for a birth? How much do Hungarian women pay? And what kind of care do they receive in return? How is the informal payment system legally regulated? We are looking for answers to these and many other questions: we investigate the effects of healthcare corruption on birth and raise public awareness about this issue. We have joined forces with leading experts of maternity care and informal payments to even suggest possible solutions!
