Extending mutual microinsurance to 5 million uninsured households in five countries over five years.

Palaniyammal's story (India)

Palaniyammal and her family reside in rural Madurai (India). Before taking out health insurance cover through the DHAN Foundation they used to pay excessive amounts for treatments they could not afford. However, thanks to the DHAN Foundation project, supported by the ICMIF 5-5-5 Mutual Microinsurance Strategy, Palaniyammal’s family now has affordable health microinsurance which has changed their lives and recently saved the life of her sister-in-law. Through its partnership with ICMIF, the DHAN Foundation aims to cover an additional 1 million people with mutual microinsurance over a five period, so that many more people like Palaniyammal and her family can benefit from affordable health microinsurance.
