Providing universal health care coverage to refugees can enable the achievement of three important but often unattainable objectives: 1) affordable and cost-effective health care for refugees from the onset of an emergency until its resolution; 2) development of a (sub) national health care coverage system for refugees or the improvement of an existing health care coverage system for nationals; and 3) a reduction in dependency and an improvement in the sustainability of health care services for refugees - while reducing costs to governments and humanitarian and development organisations. Numerous innovative approaches for financing health care have been implemented successfully in a variety of contexts, but these approaches have not been sufficiently explored as solutions for financing the health care of refugees.  This study aims to fill this gap by producing a white paper that will explore various options for providing universal health care coverage to refugees in different contexts.  The feasibility of implementing each option will be a key part of the study.
