Health Insurance for the Poor in Informal Sector
AbstractThe realization that mere existence of health care facilities does not necessarily mean that they are readily accessible to the poorest section in the informal economy, tend to the evolution of a unique health insurance scheme, with contribution according to individual capacity. This paper examines several health insurance schemes catering to the informal sector as well as some critical issues with regard to extending health insurance coverage to poor households in general and those working in the informal sector in particular.
