Investing in reproductive healthcare pays off in the long term says report

Dec 30, 2014


The world is very different today than just 25 years ago, for example, since 1990 the maternal mortality rate has dropped by 45%. However there is still a lot to be done.

A UNFPA and Guttmacher Institute report entitled Adding It Up: The Costs and Benefits of Investing in Sexual and Reproductive Health 2014 says that spending on average $25 a woman annually on sexual reproductive health services would drastically lower the number of women of women dying in pregnancy and childbirth, and the number of newborn deaths. Even though this amount equates to doubling current funding, the long-term gains for women, society and the economy outstrip the costs.

This closely ties into the vision of the Health Insurance Fund that improved access to quality health care not only creates a healthy population in the short term but also contributes to economic development in the long term. Currently, for instance, enrolled members in the health insurance programs visiting contracted healthcare providers receive quality antenatal, delivery and postnatal care. In the coming years Health Insurance Fund will scale up these activities.
