Funded Health insurance for the poorest of the poor in Rwanda | #hikeforpoorpoor

A project from PoorPoor Foundation e.V.

The state-subsidized health insurance "Mutuelle de Santé" allows poor families access to the health care system for 3€ per family member per year.Unfortunately, even this amount is not affordable for poorest families.

About this project

The Community Health Insurance (‘'Mutuelle de Santé'') is a medical scheme for poor families, and vulnerable groups, including victims of gender-based violence, aimed at covering their medical costs.
(Source of information: Response of the Government of Rwanda to the questionnaire on violence against women 2010)

In the last two years, we have already been able to provide health insurance for 1,056 people and thus more than 250 families. The health of these people living in extreme poverty has improved significantly since then, so that the overall living situation of these families is more stable.
