The acting Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Mr Femi Akingbade has reiterated the significant role the National Orientation Agency (NOA) can play in the scheme’s crucial effort to mobilise Nigerians to enrol for health insurance.
He noted particularly the persistent need to keep providing information and education for potential enrollees, thereby assisting them to recognise the benefits of health insurance, so that they can make informed decisions in favour of enrollment. The NHIS helmsman solicited the cooperation of NOA through putting at the disposal of the scheme, the well-known vast structure and national spread of the instruments of mass mobilisation of the agency.
“This will enable us succeed together as true agents of change in the spirit of the Buhari administration, especially in its commitment to ensure that all Nigerians enjoy easy access to effective, affordable, quality, available and sustainable healthcare, leading ultimately to economic prosperity and social well-being”.
Dr. Abari expressed the pleasure of NOA under his leadership to collaborate with NHIS to advance the cause of health care in the country, promising full deployment of the structure and resources of the agency in the process.
He assured the NHIS Chief Executive of the strong presence of NOA even at the ward level across the country, as well as its corps of well trained staff on the field for the task of public sensitisation and advocacies.
