How do low-income rural families manage to get by? What can their financial lives and health-seeking patterns tell us about their potential demand for health financing products such as health insurance, or credit and savings tools?
Over the course of a full year, the Financial and Health Diaries study has tracked in great detail the cash in- and outflows, health status, and health-seeking behavior of 240 households in Nigeria and Kenya. On a weekly basis, we documented how low-income families manage their money, decide on consumption and deal with health issues.
