Cash transfer for emergency healthcare in humanitarian settings in Burkina Faso
Cash transfer for emergency healthcare in humanitarian settings: The case of Burkina Faso.
The Irish Global Health Network Conference was held on 26th and 27th October 2022.
Concern in Burkina Faso presented the project 'Cash transfers for Emergency Healthcare in Humanitaria Settings: the case of Burkina Faso' at the 'Empowerment - Health Care Leadership and Representation' session.
The presentation outlines the humanitarian situation in Burkina Faso and a description of the cash transfer project.
It was found that cash transfers contributed to:
- Restoring the dignity of affected populations
- Strengthened the adherence to continuity of care
- Facilitated referrals to health services
There were also important outcomes for the management of gender-based violence (GBV) and it was found that the programme improving survivors' access and utlisation of services along the GBV referral pathway requires tailored approaches, taking into account armed conflict and displacement context, social norms and values.
