A healthcare provider and a microfinance bank will provide a product for low income people.
Known as Afya Card, the product is a pilot project bringing together AAR Health Services, AAR Credit, K-Rep Bank and K-Rep Development Agency.
It is an initiative of the Department for International Development (DfID), a UK Government aid agency.
Afya Card is a family based inpatient and outpatient health plan, designed for the lower income groups, that cost as low as Sh6,000 per person per year.
The product was revealed yesterday at a workshop held at the Panafric Hotel to discuss options of a private sector and commercially viable health financing scheme to reach low-income groups.
