Access to Healthcare in Côte d'Ivoire: A Participatory-Action Research

Access to Healthcare in Côte d'Ivoire: A Participatory-Action Research

We have published a new executive summary: 'Access to Healthcare in Côte d'Ivoire: A Participatory-Action Research'. The publication discusses a research project on healthcare access in Gagnoa, Ivory Coast, carried out by the Mouvement Ivoirien des Droits Humains with support from our organisation.

The study reveals that healthcare funding in Gagnoa largely relies on direct out-of-pocket payments, which disproportionately affect lower-income groups. This is exacerbated by the underimplementation of a national health insurance scheme intended to alleviate these financial burdens. Public healthcare facilities, while crucial for providing more affordable and specialised care, are hampered by resource shortages, inadequate staffing, and insufficient equipment. Conversely, the private healthcare sector is fragmented and inconsistent in quality, with many informal providers escaping necessary regulation, thus complicating access for economically disadvantaged groups.

The research team set up a community-led monitoring committee aimed at addressing these accountability issues and enhancing local advocacy efforts for healthcare rights.
