Abstract

The link between employment and health insurance has been central to the extension of coverage to entire populations in most industrial countries where urbanization and formal labor-market participation are high. This link is more difficult-if not impossible-to forge in the case of rural, agricultural, or self-employed workers or the urban poor who have neither formal employers nor steady work. These groups make up most of the population in most low- and middle-income countries. For these excluded populations, access to health services is still inadequate (WHO 2000; ILO 2000a; and Sen 2000).

Keywords: micro health insurance, social insurance, insurance for the poor, community based health insurance, health financing
