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.
