social protection policy - microinsurance


Summary (English)

Various paths may be taken to extend health coverage and social protection in the area of health. It is up to each country to define its own extension strategy and the most appropriate mechanisms in light of its economic and institutional development withing its historical and cultural context.
Several countries have started down that path, which consists of designing coherent and linked national health insurance systems based on several mechanisms, and a variety of actors and sources of financing.
The international STEP programme of the ILO Social Security Department is the operational instrument of the Global Campaign on Social Security and Coverage for All.
This brochure provides an overview of the activities of the STEP programme in Africa.
