Nigerian doctors task governors on health insurance scheme 

The National President of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Dr. Francis Faduyile has called on state governments to commence the implementation of the primary healthcare insurance scheme in order to make healthcare delivery available to all Nigerians.

The National President made the call in his welcome address at the 2018 National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the association held in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

He said that the implementation of the health insurance scheme was one of the two critical elements needed to achieve an effective and efficient primary health care delivery in the country.

Faduyile however commended a few states in the country that have signed into law the health insurance bills and appealed to those states that were yet to sign the bill into law not to delay any further.

“A few states in Nigeria have signed into law health insurance bills; there is still much room for improvement. We thank you Mr. Governor for signing primary healthcare management agency bill and as well as state health insurance bill into law.

“However, we call for the speedy implementation so that the good people of Akwa Ibom can enjoy and continue to enjoy the benefits you are showering on them in your administration as the governor of the state,” he said

The National President disclosed that the association was in talks with sister associations in the healthcare sector to stem the frequent disharmony in the sector.

His words, “We are currently engaging with our friends in the health team particularly the nurses and pharmacists and hopefully we know that this approach will reduce the disharmony that has characterised the health sector in recent time.”

Responding, the state governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel stated that apart from signing the health insurance bill into law, his administration had also gone a step further to improve health care delivery in the state by setting up the primary healthcare development agency. The governor added that he has released take-off grant to ensure the implementation of the health care insurance scheme in the state.

He tasked medical doctors in the country to venture into medical manufacturing by partnering with businessmen in that direction, which he reasoned would bridge the gap in medical equipment production and also reduce the huge foreign exchange spent on the importation of medical equipment.

NAIJARAY reports that the 2018 National Executive Council meeting of the NMA had as its theme: “Strengthening healthcare delivery in Nigeria: Addressing legal and ethical issues in health care management”. The event witnessed the investiture of Governor Udom Emmanuel as the NMA Ambassador, and the offering of over 3,000 medical consultations, 144 free medium and minor surgeries as stated by the national president of the association.
