create financial models of health that allows anyone to get access to the health
of household resources . Garbage is the best solution, because almost every
day , every person , and every home produces waste that is not used . What we
do is make people mobilize their resources are wasted and not used , that is
garbage, to improve access to health and destroy the barrier or barrier between
access to public health. Practically, I asked people hand over 1 dollars per
month and the number of garbage is returned as health insurance in primary
care. " Said Gamal.

of this garbage insurance could encourage people to become entrepreneurs
