To make sure that people can access health services without financial hardship, many countries have committed to ensuring universal health coverage. In a new video, the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute talks about their expertise and services in health financing and insurance informatics that contribute to universal health coverage.
Swiss TPH designs and implements health insurance solutions in countries among other things. This covers system aspects related to the financing of health systems, quality of care, as well as questions of health information systems and digitalization.
Over the years, Swiss TPH has worked in 15 different countries in Africa and Asia.
In Tanzania for instance, we introduced a reformed community health fund to include the rural and informal sector populations in social health protection schemes. Over 3 million people benefit from health insurance, giving them access to treatment and medicines at over 6000 health facilities in Tanzania.
