1. Context

Health care coverage is a key point in fostering access to quality and affordable health care services for all. In a context of limited resources where public and governmental actions are not sufficient to ensure health care coverage for every citizen, private initiatives must be encouraged. Otherwise, one of the reasons why private health insurance still struggle to settle in Cameroon, is lack of trust in insurance companies’ system and yet health care providers involvement in the process, may bring more credit to private health insurance schemes and motivates enrollment. The private health insurance system proposed by THEA medical foundation is an example of such an engagement that can serve as model for other health care practitioners. The problematic that will be addressed during this webinar rely on the following questions: What are the health care providers’ concrete actions for private health insurance promotion? How do the THEA’s foundation health care coverage function? What are the encountered challenges? How to engage more health care providers in the promotion of private health insurance?
