Project Evaluation, M-FUND Project

Background:

  • Dreamlopments (DLP), a Thai-based non-profit social enterprise, is running in Tak and Sakaeo provinces in Thailand, the Migrant Fund (M-FUND), a low-cost, not-for-profit health insurance for migrants not covered by existing government insurance schemes (mainly unregistered migrants). The project was launched in September 2017, and is currently supported by the Initiative 5% of the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs through Expertise France. Additional funding support is also received from the European Union through UNICEF, and the Global Fund through Raks Thai Foundation and UNOPS. The project is conducted in collaboration with Thai government public hospitals in Tak and Sakaeo provinces. www.m-fund.online
     

  • In this project, Community Workers provide information about M-FUND to their peers. Those interested are enrolled by CW in their communities, through use of tablets and a secured web-application. An electronic membership card is generated, and linked to an individual QR code card that can be scanned in partner facilities, to reveal members’ benefits and coverage under M-FUND.
     

  • Members are asked to contribute a premium of 100 THB/person/month, associated with coverage benefits of 50,000 THB/person/year. Persons with chronic diseases, or pregnant women, can also enroll, for an additional option payment of 200 THB/person/month.
     

  • As of Nov 25, 2019, a total of 13,383 members had already enrolled voluntarily in the M-FUND, and more than 10,000 outpatient consultations, and 2,000 inpatient admissions, have already been covered for M-FUND members in the network of partner healthcare providers.
     

  • Under current funding support from Initiative 5% (and other support), M-FUND pursues objectives of extension of the project implementation, and coverage of migrants in needs, in Tak and Myawaddy along the Thai-Myanmar border, as well as other provinces in Thailand (Sakaeo, and 1 other province to be confirmed in 2020).
     

  • Under funding from Initiative 5%, we aim to conduct a mid-term project funding evaluation, and are looking for suitable monitoring and evaluation expert candidates.

This mid-term evaluation will also specifically look at:


a) The perceptions among M-FUND members, of the value of M-FUND coverage.
