Project

GRET is in charge of one component of a health care program financed by the European Union and implemented by the UNFPA. This component consists of improving health care access conditions, notably when it comes to reducing maternal and infant illness in disadvantaged neighborhoods, and making access to care financially more secure. This improvement of financial security is accomplished through a micro health insurance service in these same neighborhoods.
Activities focus notably on:
-    Support for health care centers: governance, improving management and operations, strengthening technical teams; and
-    The launch of a pilot mutual insurance scheme in the Cité Eternel neighborhood.
