What is the problem that the commitment addresses?
The systems of integrity, probity and prevention of corruption are fundamental to reduce the risks of corruption in any society. In Honduras, these systems have positive advances, but a closer look allows to identify numerous problems that merit reforms or State actions. The TSC and the other institutions called to contribute in the diffusion of values and training to public servants, should deepen their commitment to education and knowledge of the mandates, dispositions, duties and prohibitions under the Code of Ethical Conduct, as an element of prevention. The Committees of Ethics should be strengthened so that they can meet effectively and efficiently its function.
