Our abstract for the CHAMPIONS scoping review was recently published in The Lancet; see below for the full text.

Scoping Review Summary
We summarise the main ways to improve healthcare access and use that we found in the Scoping Review.
Cash transfers are examples where the government or other organisations give families money to help with needs.
Community-Based Primary Healthcare
Health workers that are based in communities can make treatment quicker and with better results.
Mobile Health Technology
Using apps and mobiles phones can help remind people of appointments and find services.
Some countries have tried to fund health services based on the quality and quantity of their services to improve results.
Mobile Outreach Services
In some countries health workers travel to remote communities.
Community-Based Health Insurance
Some communities combine their money to pay for expensive costs.
Making it free or cheaper to get healthcare can make more people use services.
