Leveraging Saving Schemes to Expand Social Health Protection in Zambia
ThinkWell provided technical assistance to the Government of Zambia in its efforts to implement social health insurance. ThinkWell assessed the potential to leverage community saving groups and microfinance institutions to expand the coverage of the future Social Health Insurance Scheme among the informal sector. ThinkWell also provided technical support to one of the biggest saving group initiatives in Zambia — the Zambia Poor People’s Federation — on how to strengthen their current health savings product, which has the objective of improving the social protection of their members.
