Resource Description:

Grenada is considering developing a National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme to provide sustainable health sector financing and reduce reliance on out-of-pocket spending. An NHI “prefeasibility” assessment prepared by the HEU, Centre for Health Economics of the University of the West Indies identified key areas for research in preparation for developing NHI. One recommendation was a study to estimate of the current cost of health services at the country’s General Hospital, a 212- bed referral hospital in St. George’s. Such a study would be a critical research input when designing and modeling the financial sustainability of an NHI system and also essential for HIV/AIDS program financial sustainability planning.
