Health expenditures can differ greatly between households as these are based on risk rather than on average need. For this reason, ensuring access to health care services for people affected by crisis poses specific challenges to humanitarian organisations.  Cash and voucher assistance is a complimentary tool to traditional supply-side public health programming. In line with commitments made at The Grand Bargain to increase the use and coordination of CVA, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is committed to establish, coordinate and develop CVA for health interventions.
Below it is possible to access resources linked to Movement’s outputs on latest evidence, learning and technical capacity to use CVA as a tool for health programming.
