Garbage Clinical Insurance

|

Indonesia

Garbage Clinical Insurance (GCI) is a micro health insurance program which uses garbage as a financial resource. With this program, the community pays for clinical services by collecting garbage. This way the community can mobilize their unused resources to improve health access and breakdown barriers between health facilities and communities. The main principle of Garbage Clinical Insurance is organizing community to create sustainable financing and open health access. It also becomes an incentive for the community to start a proper waste management program.
