Abstract The upsurge in the morbidity and mortality rate among the bottom 40 categories in Southeast Asia has been attributed to socio-economic inequalities. The potentials of social assistance in alleviating ill-health challenges have been gaining attention in recent times. The underlying rationale is that improving the health and general well-being of low-income earners and the poor will enable them to generate income and contribute to the gross national economic development. Evidence on the health impact of Islamic social assistance initiatives on reducing social health inequality in ASEAN countries is scattered in different literature. Therefore, this is a need for a systematic review of the recent and related literature on the topic to synthesis existing findings and identify gaps for further studies. It is against this background that we propose to undertake this study. Using keywords combinations which include terms such as; “Zakat, Sadaqah, Waqf & Baitul mal” “Islamic social finance,” “Islamic social assistance initiatives,” “Social health inequality,” and “Health insurance services”. The study will explore, Scopus, Emerald, and google scholar for peer-reviewed and grey publications on the topic. We will restrict our synthesis to studies, which were conducted on the topic in Southeast Asian countries. Our findings will be drawn upon for policy recommendations and to flesh out agendas for future research.
