One of the big challenges facing the Government of Cameroon is how to finance and provide healthcare access to more than 79% workers in agriculture and the informal sector. This study intends to analyze the contribution of community health financing to the demand solvability of the worker’s healthcare in the informal sector in Cameroon. Using the logistic regression model of use of health care services, which is based on descriptive statistics and survey data (EUDN-ILO, 2010) in certain regions of the country in particular the Centre, North-West and Far-North regions, findings reveal that community healthcare financing is an important tool for the solvability of workers in the informal sector, as concerns their demand for healthcare. In addition, the determinants that have proven to be significant regarding the participation of workers in the informal sector in community health financing are marital status (monogamy), level of education, religious affiliation and distance.
Key words: Community health financing, informal sector, healthcare demand.
