Health and Nutrition Vouchers for Marginalized Urban Extreme Poor in Bangladesh

30 March 2021

The urban poor in Bangladesh face many complex health needs, including a high prevalence of non-communicable diseases, with insufficient access to health care, and high out of pocket payments. High user fees and distance to travel are further barriers to accessing services and are a major reason why people postpone or forego healthcare. This study examines the experimental use of vouchers in Bangladesh by 3 different agencies to address health gaps for the extreme poor in urban areas.
