Methodology: Four hundred and twenty participants in three ministry of health facilities were surveyed using a descriptive cross-sectional correlational design and validated survey data.
Results: The total average of all responses on all items of the organisational transparency was 3.37± 0.66. Organisational transparency was perceived by nurses more than physicians and allied healthcare providers. The old participants perceive their organisation as transparent more than younger participants. The participants in all the four education categories: Diploma, Bachelor, Master, and Doctorate, were homogeneous about their responses on the organisational transparency. There were substantial gender variations in the means of the participants' replies.
