What we're doing ?
We study implementation, effectiveness, and equity effects of interventions intended to reduce health access difficulties.
Each country chose specific strategies
In Mali : Strengthen the availability and quality of the healthcare offered in the Mopti region and support the establishment of an inter-professional mutual insurance.
In Chad : Strengthen the implementation of health fees exemption policies for pregnant women and children under five in two regions; Dosso and Logone Occidental.
In Senegal : Interventions relate to both mutual insurance companies, and to various health fees exemption policies.
Our priority is to observe the implementation, effects and impacts of interventions through a series of cross-sectional analyzes to measure the effects of interventions on health indicators, on household spending and on inequalities , in particular. taking into account the various social determinants such as fertility or schooling, as well as geographic determinants.
Particular importance is given to analyzes of governance and resilience of health systems : deciphering the configurations of actors and institutions, understanding the processes and mechanisms of health financing in national, regional and international contexts. In particular, the question of the sustainability of interventions is addressed, in connection with the concept of resilience, to document how health systems may or may not absorb daily or exceptional disruptions.
