Abstract: The paper helps to answer research questions to establish the ‘Save a Million’ (SaM) project using Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs) information. The research questions are categorised into the three stakeholder groups such as savings program providers; institutional cost-bearers such as health insurance companies and hospitals; and finally, potential promoters involving health campaigners and the media in Bangladesh. The findings indicate that Bangladesh is a suitable jurisdiction for setting up Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) and carrying out the ‘Save a Million’ project in order to reduce out-of-pocket healthcare costs and save lives.
