Tran Thi Hoa, 2002

The role of health care in economic development has received increasing attention in recent years since poor health is a primary cause of impoverishment and bankrupt families. According to WHO in 2000, health-related impoverishment is derived from a lack of risk pooling and proper insurance system. A wave of health insurance initiatives has swept across Africa, Asia, and Latin America and compulsory social health insurance in many developing countries is taken as a popular approach to health care reform.

This session seeks to portray the experiences of Korea, Japan and the World Bank in the field of health insurance, and to share the implications that can be learned. They are expected to review theories and to analyze how health insurance systems have been designed and implemented at each stage of development. The participants will learn how having an effective health insurance system contributes to promoting sustainable and broad-based development of a country.
