Supporting People Living with HIV in Tanzania to Purchase Private Health Insurance

Jamii is a cashless and paper-less mobile-enabled private health insurance product in Tanzania. Jamii insurance provides an opportunity for a low cost entry to health insurance among uninsured populations (including people living with HIV) who are well suited to the private sector. USAID/Washington’s Office of HIV and AIDS engaged the SHOPS Plus project to partner with Jamii to increase private health insurance coverage among people living with HIV as a means of increasing access to HIV services in the private health sector. SHOPS Plus provided technical assistance to complement key partner and other donor support for a six month pilot implementation of Jamii education, sales and distribution activities with a focus on people living with HIV. This report provides the results and findings from the pilot activity.
