Peru proclaims success of new health insurance scheme

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Peruvian health ministry has announced that the country's hospital for paediatric emergencies has treated over 100 children registered under the new Seguro Integral de Salud (SIS) health insurance scheme. The SIS met all costs involved, including hospitalisation, surgery, intensive care and pharmaceutical treatments. The scheme was launched last November, as part of a wider programme to tackle the problems faced by the poorest sectors of the community in accessing basic health and social services. 70% of families who attend the children's hospital are classified as living in "extreme poverty".
