Maternity Health Insurance, For the Informal Sector in Haiti

On Friday, July 31st, the Prime Minister, Evans Paul, in the presence of the First Lady, Sophia Martelly and several of his ministers, participated in the launching ceremony of the "Maternity health insurance for the informal sector" of the Office of Insurance Work Accident, Sickness and Maternity (OFATMA).


OFATMA is a social solidarity fund created to insure employees of state and state recognized institutions. After 48 years of its creation, President Martelly has implemented a national insurance plan for employees of informal sectors including small and medium-sized enterprises. The new insurance plan will provide comprehensive protective cover against accident and diseases to all persons engaged in different professions, vocations or self employed who were never engaged or have worked in state or organized sector.
