Former President John Mahama says the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIA) needs new sources of funding.

“We are also proposing sources of funding for the  Health Insurance. The health insurance as it was designed was to cover a period of ten years.

“We have gone far past that number of years and the subscriber base has increased phenomenally and the funding sources have become insufficient to sustain the health insurance, and so looking at new sources of funding for health insurance will be important,” the NDC flagbearer told members and executives of the Ghana Medical Association in a meeting Monday.

He said the NDC will activate the various health facilities and projects that have been left unused upon the assumption of the NPP government.

“We talked about operationalizing projects that have been completed but are standing idle like the University of Ghana Medical Centre, the Bank Hospital, the Wa Hospital and several other projects that have been commissioned but are still not operationalised,

On his part, the President of the Ghana Medical Association, Dr. Frank Ankobea said the meeting was helpful.

“We probably would have to meet some groups of the NDC and then still go down to some other health policies that they have.”
