Residents of Nkwanta-North unable to access health insurance

Mr. Daniel Yao Donkor, Nkwanta-North District Director of Health Services, has called on government to open a district National Health Insurance Scheme office for the area. He expressed worry that people in the District were unable to access NHIS because there was no office to facilitate the work of the scheme. Mr. Donkor made the call when Mr. Joseph Amenorwode, Volta Regional Minister, paid a working visit to the district on Tuesday. The District Director of Health Services said the nearest NHI office was at Nkwanta in the Nkwanta-South District, which was remote to Nkwanta-North because of the bad nature of the road in the area. Mr. Donkor said that many people including the aged and lactating mothers have not registered with the scheme and could not have access to health care because of the situation. He said those who had registered could either not get their registration cards or renew them. Mr. Amenorwode said government was committed to providing health care to the people and gave the assurance that an NHI office would soon be opened in the Nkwanta-North District.
