The European Microfinance Platform's press release states:

 

"Under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, access to healthcare is one of the fundamental human rights, alongside the right to education, the right to work and the right for families and children to be protected. Yet, although access to healthcare is a fundamental universal right, it is often conditional on household income and the quality of the healthcare available. Paying for healthcare represents a greater financial risk for households with insecure and volatile incomes in low-income countries.

 

As a result of being closer to its customers and the socio-economic challenges they face, the inclusive finance sector plays a key role in helping them to deal with health-related financial shocks. Fonkoze, winner of the 2021 European Microfinance Award, addresses these challenges in Haiti through Boutik Santé, a health screening and education training initiative for customers."
