The health card insurance scheme in Burundi : a social asset or a non-viable venture ?
La Carte d'Assurance Maladie (CAM) is a national health card insurance scheme implemented by the government of Burundi since 1984.
Focus group discussions, a household survey, and a retrospective outpatient survey were used in 1992 to assess its financial and social performance in Muyinga Province.
The study showed that although the revenue from premiums was insufficient to fund even the recurrent costs of outpatient drugs consumed by participating households (the current price of the CAM card would cover approx. 34% of the outpatient drug costs), the scheme performed a valuable social equity function.
