Karin Community initiatives is taking community health insurance (CHI) mobilization to a whole new level in Liyak. Members of the community got a chance to have their blood pressure tested at a completely free cost and also an exciting opportunity to enroll in the health insurance scheme.
It should be noted that out-of-pocket expenditure on healthcare has proven to be too expensive in most impoverished but resilient communities like Gulu which are still recovering from the effects of the LRA war. CHI scheme is the best prepayment mechanism with pooling of health risks and of fund where even the poorest can get a chance to access quality health care.
You too can be part of this life saving work. With 100$, you can mobilize a village to enroll on the scheme.
