CHF Igunga - Collaboration with Co-operative Societies

  • District leadership agreed that there was need to establish a task force

  • Task force was formulated under the District Commissioner and the DED in a multi-sectoral approach

CHF Igunga - Collaboration with Co-operative Societies

  • Task force performance and tools:
  • The team mobilized 19 co-operative societies to pay CHF premiums for their members
  • Sensitization involved co-operative society members and leaders, social groups, influential people, religious leaders, village councils and ward development committees
  • Advantages of CHF transmitted in Sensitization
    • burden of user fees reduced
    • community attracted to join co-operatives - hence more CHF members
    • If cooperatives invest in health of their members - likely to enhance economic activity of their workers

  • Next Steps:
  • Achieve consensus on collaboration between CHF and cooperatives by:
    • holding meetings with the cooperative’s members
    • principle agenda to discuss and make decisions on the need for paying CHF premiums
    • agreement reached on the benefit of members receiving health services after cooperatives have paid premiums on their behalf

  • Constraints:
  • Draughts and food shortages cause low production - cooperatives may fail to meet their goals
  • Poor services in some health facilities due to shortages of staff and drugs - cause cooperatives to refuse payment for premiums
  • Delays of receiving levy from companies which by crops is also a problem

  • Way forward:
  • Improve health services
  • Purchase a large quantity of essential drugs at district level by using CHF funds.
  • Shorten the long distance from one health facility to another by mobilizing the community to build new health facilities
