Episode 27: Health Insurance?

Health Insurance?

1 in 3 GoFundMe campaigns today are for covering medical bills. It’s also been noted that even in countries where there are both public and private health plans, the majority of those who can afford it still opt not to subscribe. Could it be a lack of faith in the system? We sent a note to a few friends in five countries across the continent for their thoughts on this, and in this episode, we’ll have a listen to what they had to say. We also have a very insightful discussion with the CEO of the AMREF Health, who also happens to be the Co-Chair for the World Health Organization committee on Universal Health Cover, Dr Githinji Gitahi for some facts on the economics of it all.
