Countries all over the world have always been concerned with developing their health care financing systems, so as to ensure access to health care for their citizens. They have sought to develop systems that would provide adequate financial resources and to be affordable to all those sharing in the costs, through mechanisms that will not entail financial barriers to seeking care, particularly at the time of illness. In theory, social health insurance has the most potential to achieve health policy objectives, in practice it has been difficult to achieve in low-income countries because, implementing Social Health Insurance in economically, socially, and culturally diverse environments, produces unexpected challenges. Linkages between overcoming the challenges of implementing social health insurance in low-income countries and the success of the scheme vary from institutional, legal and technical point of view. Designing and implementing social health insurance in Sierra Leone is constraint by lack of human capacity and sufficient financial resources among others.
This book is the first attempt in Ethiopia to perceive issues of minorities from strengths perspective. Prior research in the area mainly focuses on facts like exclusion, poverty, rights violation and the like that are resulted from social exclusion. Nevertheless, the strengths embedded in minority communities that enabled them to cope with the inhospitable living condition are neglected. This innovative manuscript vividly presents how social minorities are making use of their social networks for their economic and social wellbeing. Minorities, in the absence of formal and institutionalized social support mechanism tend to use their social networks as a form of insurance. Beyond this, the book also describes how minorities are using their social networks as the way out from social exclusion. The book argues that interventions targeting minorities should approach from the strengths existing in minority community.

This work has the goal to provide a risk management procedure in order to improve fire protection of Valuable Contents in Historical Heritage Buildings. The core of the procedure is structured in two parts: Risk Assessment and Risk Treatment. In Risk Assessment phase, by means of a risk analysis and evaluation method, we want to point out which are the weak points in contents protection due both to building features and to management strategies. In Risk Treatment phase is proposed a method to choose the best set of mitigation measures to reduce risk for Valuable Contents. The procedure suggests to the user sets of coherent actions to reduce specific risks by means of managerial strategies and interventions on the building. The procedure could be useful for insurance risk managers, fire engineers and managers of historical buildings that have responsibility for the Valuable Contents.
