Description: 

This study examines the impact of micro health insurance on the demand for health care based on a representative survey of 317 households in the Health District in Mbalmayo central region in Cameroon. Authors show that evaluated schemes are plagued by adverse selection, which questions the impact of the membership in health mutuals on health care utilization.
