Ascoma Burkina Faso

Based in Ouagadougou since 2012, Ascoma Burkina Faso operates insurance and reinsurance brokerage activities throughout Burkina Faso.

The country in a nutshell

  • Population: 18.4 million (2016)
  • Area: 274,200 km2
  • GNP: $12.12 billion (2016)
  • Rate of growth: 5.9% (2016)

Burkina Faso insurance market

The insurance sector is operated by 12 approved companies and recorded an overall turnover growth of 8.6%, for a total of FCFA 50,300 million (5% of market share). Although the country's economic growth is stabilizing, Burkina Faso is still struggling to meet the needs of its inhabitants. Until now, existing health cover mainly concerned workers and occupational diseases. The development of social mutuals  and the mobilization of the population have helped to promote access to care, particularly with the adoption in 2015 of a law on the Universal Health Insurance Plan (RAMU).  Ascoma Burkina Faso provides analysis, advice, insurance policy placement and claims management services.
