Welcome to the Health Inc Website


The Health Inc. (“Financing health care for inclusion”) research project is funded by a €2.8 million grant from the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme (Activity area: Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities").

Health Inc. will explore how social exclusion restricts access to health services despite recent health financing reforms and how social health protection can be increased. Research will be conducted in Ghana, Senegal and the Indian states of Maharashtra and Karnataka.

Health Inc. is a three-year (May 2011 – April 2014) collaborative research project between LSE Health (project coordinator), the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp, Tata Institute of Social Science in Mumbai, Institute of Public Health in Bangalore, the Centre for Research on Social Policies in Senegal and the Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research in Ghana.
