The project supported the development of a national health insurance (NHI) programme for Grenada that aims to provide universally accessible and affordable health-care services. It is expected that, in the longer term, the NHI will facilitate a population-wide, cost-effective programme with a focus on efficient, quality and affordable care for vulnerable and marginalized populations and those living in poverty.

Key results


  • NHI Secretariat established, including infrastructure and human resources.
  • Staff capacity developed in NHI administration and operations. 
  • Over 600 persons engaged in public education and advocacy forums, increasing knowledge about the programmes and NHI facilities.
