GHANAIAN GOVT WORKING TO REVIVE NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE SCHEME, SAY PRESIDENT

HI, GHANA, Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says the government is working feverishly to revive the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) and was paying all outstanding claims and addressing other financial challenges to re-position the scheme.

Addressing a thanksgiving service of the Global Evangelical Church in Ho, the capital of southern Volta Region (Province), Sunday, he said health and education remained priority areas for the government and called for support of all to fix the challenges in those sectors.

He added that government was committed to developing all parts of the country and that the “One District, One Factory” programme would start in June this year in a bid to industrialise the country.

President Akufo-Addo said the government’s “Planting for Food and Job”‘ and the Free Senior High School programmes would also begin soon to boost food security and enhance access to education. “I am committed to promises I made about the future direction of our country and we are doing our best to fulfill them,” he said.
