Informal sector is high in EAC (60-80% of economy). The situation is quite similar in almost all developing countries as the economies are essentially informal sector. It takes time to change the situation, even with the effort in easy registration of businesses. The developing countries economies are mainly rural and traditional based. Transforming traditional farms in businesses is very difficult. It is why having health sector essentially financed by public funds is not realistic and causes poor quality of services. In other hands requesting poor and low income to finance them is not realistic as well. The solidarity through establishment of mix public private insurances is much realistic.
