Work package 2
Coping with the financial risks associated with illness
The aims of this work package are
- To enrich empirical evidence on how households respond to the financial risks presented by illness and how they finance uninsured payments for health care in low and lower-middle income Asia.
- To identify the impact of financial risks associated with illness on household welfare in the short and long term.
- To determine whether uninsured health payments or lost earnings present the greatest risk associated with illness.
