Can we assume that people understand insurance principles? : The case of India and Nepal, in Bulletin 120: Improving Access through effective health financing

Description: 

When approaching people at the “base of the pyramid” (BOP) in Low-Income Countries (LIC) with the idea of insurance, the first challenge is to establish a basis for communication. The question that arises is whether they understand insurance principles. This issue was examined by analysing replies to a series of questions in household surveys that were conducted in several locations in India and in Nepal.
