I-WITNESS on Attaining Universal Health Coverage in Anambra State.
Dr. Simeon Onyemaechi has described the establishment of the Anambra State Health Insurance Agency by Governor Willie Obiano as one sure way of attaining Universal Health Coverage in the state.
The ASHIA Boss made this known when he hosted the members of the I-WITNESS CREW in his office on Tuesday, May 14, 2019.
The crew was particularly in his office to enquire the efforts and strategies the Anambra State Government is putting in place through the State’s Health Insurance Agency – ASHIA in providing accessible, quality and affordable healthcare services to the people of the state.
Dr. Onyemaechi informed the CREW that by establishing ASHIA, Gov. Willie Obiano has set the state on the path of achieving universal healthcare for all. He opined that the universal health coverage could only be achieved when the pregnant wife of an ordinary farmer in the rural village has access to quality and affordable healthcare services anywhere in the world. Said; ” The major aim of ASHIA is to bring everybody in the state under its coverage”.
“The Agency has offices in all the Local government Areas in the state and has at least an accredited health facility for its enrollees to access”.
“We appreciate Gov. Willie Obiano for his policy on institutionalizing governance stressing that the Governor has established what would outlive his government to the benefit of ndi Anambra “, Dr. Simeon Onyemaechi concluded.
