Progressive opening of Mutual Benefit Society counters in public and accredited hospitals

Implementation year
1987

The progressive opening of Mutual Benefit Society for Public Employees (Mutuelle de la fonction publique – MFP) counters in Burundi’s public and accredited hospitals helps to combat fraud, social security evasion and identification, and prescribing errors while promoting the gradual extension of health-care coverage throughout the country. This results in job creation, as benefit controllers are recruited to work in the hospitals in question. There are also significant advantages for the MFP, as vast amounts of money are returned to the fund and fraud and error are prevented.
