International Case Studies
School Voucher: Italy
Region Lombardie in Italy introduced school vouchers in lieu of the cash transfers being done towards the education of economically weak section students in the region. Vouchers were introduced successfully as the new service delivery management method to empower students to avail primary level, secondary level and vocational education. These vouchers are valid at public schools, private schools and vocational institutions. In addition to education allowance, these vouchers also have a fixed entitlement of food, books & transportation components. Edenred partners Region Lombardie in managing the voucher program including affiliation, issuance, settlement & reporting.

Ticket Farmacia: Chile
Convinced by the efficiency of Edenred solution for the administration of Food subsidies, JUNAEB renewed its trust. JUNAEB employs doctors who heal children and so far had to handle medicine stock. They wanted to avoid stock management. Since July 2010 Ticket Farmacia Card is used to administer subsidies provided to children for buying medicine. Some municipalities also started to use Ticket Farmacia since it is part of Convenio Marco (governmental referenced catalogue).
