Cash and Voucher Assistance for Health

August 2020 — By MEDAIR, The CALP Network

Evidence is slowly emerging on the use of cash and voucher assistance (CVA) to reach health outcomes. The key entry point for CVA in
health is the strategy Healthcare 2030, which aims at Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and access to healthcare when people need it without inducing financial hardships CVA can be useful to improve access to and utilization of health services in humanitarian settings, by reducing direct and indirect financial barriers and/or by incentivizing the use of free
preventive services.
This study sheds light on the use of cash transfers by Medair in Jordan between 2017 and 2019 as part of its response to health-related needs of vulnerable populations, both refugee and host communities, living in Jordan.
