The theme of the vigilance awareness this year is “Integrity- a way of life”. Vigilance Awareness Week will commence with the administration of ‘Integrity Pledge’ to the officers/staff of the Ministry by the Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, to fight against corruption and commit to highest standards of honesty and integrity. It is also proposed to award prizes to winners of the competitions to be conducted by this Ministry.

The Central Vigilance Commission aims to promote integrity, transparency and accountability in public life. As part of its efforts to promote probity in public life and to achieve a corruption-free society, CVC observes Vigilance Awareness Week every year.

The observation of Vigilance Awareness Week creates greater awareness among the public and encourages all the stakeholders to collectively participate in the prevention of and fight against corruption.

During the week-long Vigilance Awareness campaign, various activities like public interaction for redressal of their grievances, usage of generic medicines, surprise inspections, conducting seminars, workshops, debates among students, faculty, children of staff/ officers, poster competitions, essay writing, quiz, painting competitions inculcating moral/ethical values, and other vigilance related awareness activities will be carried out in sync with the theme of the year 2019.

These will sensitise and motivate its officers and staff to remain vigilant and transparent in their work in order to eradicate corruption in all spheres of life.
