Universal health coverage involves making sure that every individual can access the quality health services (s)he needs at an affordable price. Our health programme supported the roll out of such coverage for vulnerable populations in six inland regions in the country.
In this context, we worked with the main public health insurance body, the SIS (Seguro Integral de Salud) which offers health insurance to more than half the inhabitants of Peru.
In addition, we provided budget support for the results-based financing mechanism of the maternal and infant health programme. This system finances the health entities based on their performance. We also took part in the policy dialogue on improving the quality of preventive and curative care.
