The impact of health insurance education on enrolment of microfinance institution clients in the Ghana national health insurance scheme, northern region of Ghana

Description: 

Despite the fact that national health insurance has been available in Ghana since 2003, the coverage is far from universal, especially in rural areas. This study published by ILO's Microinsurance Innovation Facility evaluates a consumer education intervention for microfinance clients by Freedom from Hunger and Sinapi Aba Trust, designed to increase awareness, knowledge and eventually take-up rates of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
