Adamawa has joined the league of visionary states in Nigeria to commence the implementation of a State-wide Mandatory Health Insurance scheme in an effort to achieve universal health coverage (UHC) and promote access to quality and affordable healthcare services.

This followed an agreement signed in Yola by the Ministry of Health and PharmAccess Foundation for PharmAccess to lead the technical development process for the state-wide health insurance scheme.

The State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Fatima Abubakar presented the contract document to PharmAccess’ Director of Advocacy & Communications, Dr. Olamide Okulaja who represented the Foundation’s Country Director Mrs. Njide Ndili.

The Commissioner said the partnership with PharmAccess is a demonstration of the State’s renewed commitment to investing in the health sector in order to “reduce the financial burden on the people of Adamawa as they seek access to quality healthcare and pursue productive and healthy lives.”

In his remarks, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Dr. Garba Ahmed said that “everybody knows how expensive it is for people to access health, so we have to think outside the box and see the extent to which we can support people especially those less fortunate in our society to enable them access good healthcare.”
