Description:

Ghana National Health Insurance Scheme: Barriers to Access for Informal WorkersGhana’s National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) is an innovative attempt to extend social protection to informal workers, and, as such, it may hold important policy lessons for other countries where the informal economy is large and growing and where informal workers are excluded from existing social protection mechanisms.

 

Few studies have specifically focused on the impact of the NHIS on informal workers. This WIEGO Social Protection Working Paper is an attempt to fill this gap in the literature.
