1.2. Background of Community Based Health Financing Project
Community Based Health Financing (CBHF) is a non-profit making micro health insurance concept targeting low-income earners especially from the informal sector. It is an innovative concept that provides an alternative mechanism for promoting equitable access to affordable quality health care formed on the principles of voluntarism, social solidarity and mutual aid in which members participate fully in its financing and management.
STIPA has been promoting the CBHF concept since its inception in 1999. However, its initial role was facilitation of the process through the implementing organizations by then; being Anglican
Development Services (ADS), Western Region Christian Community Services (WRCCS) and Eldoret Region Company (ELRECO).
