PROJECT FACTSHEET

 

 

Title

Promoting Sustainable Health and Nutrition Opportunities for marginalised urban extreme poor population (PROSHOMON) in Bangladesh

More than 60% of the total health expenditure in Bangladesh is financed by the out of pocket expenditure from individuals. This figure shows the urgent need to increase health funding and financial pooling mechanisms even from a social protection perspective. With this pilot project PROSHOMON, the EU aims to present a model of health financing scheme with an use of a smart card/voucher and partnership among the local government, public and private health service providers that can be scaled up and contribute towards achieving universal health coverage (i.e. every people has access to quality health services whenever they need without any financial hardship).
