A hospital in Zimbabwe fined women who screamed during childbirth, according to a new report on global corruption.
The report, released this week from Transparency International, found that nurses in the economically struggling country were told to charge women a $5 penalty for “raising false alarm.”
The report also found that women who couldn’t pay the fines, or other delivery fees, were detained at the hospital and charged interest.
