Universal social protection in health is a main challenge for most countries in sub-Saharan Africa. This Handbook of Micro Health Insurance in Africa focuses on the relatively new and promising approach of micro health insurance as a tool between market, self-help, and state, aiming to reduce poverty, to combat social exclusion and to improve access to health care for low-income households. This volume introduces the general context, common types and current state of micro health insurance and provides deeper insights into the implementation of micro health insurance in sub-Saharan Africa.

Prof. Dr. Hans Jürgen Rösner is the Director of the Department for Cooperative Studies and Social Policy of the University of Cologne in Germany and holds a professorship for Social Policy.
