Report: The Impact of Community-Based Health Insurance on Access to Care and Equity in Rwanda


Rwanda's Community-Based Health Insurance (CBHI) scheme has been recognized internationally for its success. From 2012 to 2015, MSH and the University of Rwanda-College of Medicine and Health Sciences-School of Public Health, studied the impact on access and equity of the scheme. The study aimed to find out if there were barriers to enrollment in the scheme and accessing health care services, and if adequate financial protection was provided against health care costs.
