Digital Innovations in Social Health Protection for India

As part of the ILO project, “Technical support to ESIS (Employees’ State Insurance Scheme) for improving and expanding access to health care services in India – A transition to formality”, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the ILO has been supporting the Employees’ State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) in India to strengthen its health services while increasing coverage and financial protection of working people in India.

This report titled ‘Digital Innovations in Social Health Protection for India’ is aimed at providing latest information and lessons from countries across the world to support the ESIC’s ongoing digital initiatives. This report should be seen more as a repository of relevant knowledge than a prescriptive document. It is expected to inform ongoing deliberations and reforms in key institutions such as the ESIC and other stakeholders working in this field.
