Health Equity Program
Financial barrier is one of the key impediments among the poor in not being able to access basic health services. The Health Equity Fund and Subsidy schemes have been recognized as one of the Ministry of Health’s health financing approaches which effectively help poor people gain access to appropriate health care services and protect them against health related impoverishment. With the financial support from the MoH, RHAC is able to implement our activities to support the poor.
Goal/Objective
The project will contribute to the poverty reduction through protecting the poor from unnecessary out-of-pocket expense. We work to promote and facilitate access to health services by the poor, and to play a role in improving quality of public health care system by serving as an independent third party advocating on behalf of the poor for fair, friendly, and appropriate health care services.
Activity
To facilitate access to health services by the poor, we have trained local authorities and Community-Based Agents (CBAs) to identify poor households and distribute eligibility cards to avail health services at no cost to clients at health centers and referral hospitals. We also continue to conduct post-identification for the poor patients through interview using the MoH checklist. Through  health education sessions and village meetings, CBAs and project staff continue to promote the project support activities to poor villagers, including their entitlement and benefits of using the public health facilities. To promote the quality of care of public health services, staff collect feedback from villagers using community score cards and address their concerns through discussion meeting with the health providers for possible service improvement. In additon, staff conduct home visits to patients to get their feedback and ensure they receive the due benefits including the payment for food, transportation, and funeral.
