Abstract

Africa's debilitating quarter share of the world's disease burden, with just 3% of the globe's health workers and 1% of its finances, is to be tackled through a unique international partnership involving a top South African NGO. Aimed at improving quality, access and affordability and beginning with sub-Saharan Africa, the partnership will upgrade health care facilities by offering a quality improvement framework and incentivised performance-based loan mechanisms. At the same time the majority low-income patients will be offered pragmatic subsidised voluntary private health insurance via a prepayment scheme.
