Impact of community‑based health insurance on utilisation of preventive health services in rural Uganda: a propensity score matching approach

This important research shows that membership of our Scheme leads to a 26% increase in use of mosquito nets and 18% increase in deworming compared to control families in our communities.  There is little research published on the effect of voluntary health insurance on preventive health so this paper is really interesting adding yet more benefits to the value of our Scheme. These include the obvious financial protection against catastrophic health expenditure in the event of acute illness, plus our previously published work on a significant reduction in childhood stunting.  In addition Kisiizi has analysed data from the Stre@mline IT system it has developed to show a 50% fall in admission rates from our clinics for those who belong to the Scheme. We currently have around 42,000 beneficiaries in 6 districts in over 220 groups in this not-for-profit scheme reaching up to 60km from Kisiizi.

Kisiizi continues to have an amazing impact all over the world.  A tourism student at the Pantheon Sorbonne of University of Paris chose Kisiizi Falls as a project due to its links with the United Nations World Tourism Organization ST-EP Project (sustainable tourism, eliminating poverty).
