Project Achievements of the KUMBO COUNCIL:
Kumbo Mutual Health

The Kumbo Council has instituted a Mutual Solidarity Health Organization called the Kumbo Mutual Health Organization that assists members to get quality health care.  The project went operational in November 2004, with all administrative organs functioning. It takes care of 75% of members’

hospitalization bills. It also takes care of outpatients at 70% up to 15,000 FCFA.  Membership now stands at 7050 making 1962 families. Since the inception of the project, 711 people who have already benefited, costing, 15,605,267 FRS. This project has been sponsored by the GTZ - Sante, in collaboration with the Kumbo Urban Council. The outpatient care has already taken care of 132 members’ bills, costing 612,630 FCFA. There is a full coverage of HIV/AIDS drugs and CD4 count tests of members for year, which  started from March 1, 2007.

With the project in place, there has been a high rate of hospital visits by members. There has also been a reduction in social risks such as mortgaging properties and other important valuables to pay bills.  Reports from service providers (hospitals) of this project say that there is a quick recovery rate of members who are psychologically not worried of paying high bills.  As a solidarity fund, the scheme encourages participatory health management, whereby each member chips in a little for the development of the scheme.  As a consequence to all of that, the living standards of members has improved.

Basic Principles of the Mutual Health Fund:

Inpatients Cares:

  • Inpatient cares are hospitalization of more than two days, deliveries, and surgery.
  • Here the contribution is strictly individual and is of 3,500 Frs per year.
  • But one can never enter the mutual alone; you need to enter with your whole restricted family or your association, but contribution is individual.
  • When we go to the hospital we will have to pay 25% of the bill and the MHF will pay 75% to the hospital.
  • Our Mutual is first of all a place for solidarity because when my neighbour is sick, I am also penalized.
