National Health Insurance Scheme


75% Persons in The Upper West Region have Registered onto NHIS|5/31/2018

A research conducted by the Ghana National Household Registry in 2017 has shown that 75% of persons who live below the poverty line in the Upper West Region are registered onto the NHIS. This was made known at a Social Protection Dialogue organized by the Ministry of Gender and Social Protection on the Role of Ghana National Household Registry (GNHR) in Accra.


The exercise undertaken by the Ghana National Household Registry (GNHR) was to register households and collect basic information on the socio economic status of persons within the Upper West Region.


 This was to identify and prioritize the groups of people who are qualified to receive social benefits to reduce poverty and increase their wellbeing.
Data collected also identified the number of Health facilities within the communities as well as the nearness of such health facilities. The research was to evaluate the access to quality healthcare to people who live in these communities.  


The Director of Membership & Regional Operations (MRO) of the NHIA Mr. Ben Kusi advised the team to periodically update the data collected on persons who live below the poverty line in order to make it easier for the NHIS to identify such persons onto the scheme.

The National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) is a social intervention program introduced by government to provide financial access to quality health care for residents in Ghana.
