The Media Rights Agenda (MRA) has named as this week’s inductee into its Freedom of Information (FOI) ‘Hall of Shame’.
The National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) an agency established by the Federal Government to provide easy access to healthcare for all Nigerians through various pre-payment systems and to regulate private health insurance.
A role the NHIS has failed woefully to perform over the years.
Today, many Nigerians still die needlessly because they cannot afford to pay hospital bills either for themselves or family members.
A situation that often leads to self-medication or reliance on herbal products that often leads to complications or even death. NHIS deserves the ‘shame’.
