    Abstract

    Risk exposure is a major cause of poverty, deprivation and persistent vulnerability worldwide. This volume analyzes individuals' and households' responses to a variety of risks, with an emphasis on health risks. The study adapts the Social Risk Management (SRM) conceptual framework and extends it considerably for academic inquiry. Using household data from Ghana and Malawi, empirical evidence is provided on the complex relationship between high risk exposure and the application of proactive and reactive SRM strategies (incl. health insurance), showing their specific contributions to risk management. // The PhD thesis has been published as monography in the series "Social Protection in Health - Challenges, Needs and Solutions in International Health Care Financing" at LIT-publisher.
