Chairperson's Statement

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the National Health Insurance Fund, I am delighted to welcome you to the Fund’s website. In the endeavor to realize the Fund’s vision and mission, the Board has put in place various policies to facilitate achievement of corporate objectives. I take this opportunity to express the Board’s and Management’s commitiment to continue improving the Fund’s services and extend health insurance coverage with the view of achieving Universal Coverage for health in our country.

This goes together with establishing policy areas to use on strengthening Fund’s performance, and the Board to continue providing guidances in all matters related to extension of membership coverage, improvement of health care services to beneficiaries, enhancement of strategic investments in health related projects, investment portfolio management, staff performance improvement, ICT and automization of business processes as well as sustainability of the Fund.

Furthermore, the Fund continues to accredit more health facilities including pharmacies, specialized clinics and stand-alone diagnostic centers in order to address long term challenges related to accessibility of health care services and shortage of medicines, particularly in rural areas. The intention of the Board is to ensure that all stakeholders are availed with the quality services that they deserve.

Lastly, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all our beneficiaries and stakeholders, who have bestowed great trust in us. I am also pleased to welcome you to frequently visit our website and pledge to you that the Fund will continue to dedicate its efforts towards provision of quality health care services to beneficiaries in line with available technology and resources.
