Abstract: This volume informs policy-makers on health financing alternatives for universal coverage. including experiences from 12 countries in Asia and the Pacific, it consolidates the evidence on social health insurance through a comparative analysis around three key policy areas: the importance of mandatory mechanisms for universal coverage; voluntary and community-based health insurance in reaching universal coverage; and the significance of provider payment mechanisms. Using this information, it highlights the role of social insurance as a major financing mechanism for universal coverage and provides recommendations for extending the coverage.
