‘Universal health coverage vital for equitable health service’
The Association of Nigeria Health Journalists has urged the government at all levels to design unique Universal Health Coverage models that can address the peculiar health needs of Nigerians.
The ANHEJ made this known in a communique signed by its President, Hassan Zaggi, and the General Secretary, Nike Adebowale, issued at the end of its 6th annual conference held in December 2022, with the theme “‘Universal Health Coverage, and National Health Insurance Act: How can Nigeria get it right? – The role of the media in perspective.”
The association said the UHC was vital to availing citizens of countries access to equal and equitable health services.
The PUNCH reports that the objectives of the conference were to deliberate on burning issues in the health sector, assess the activities of individual members and the association as a body, as well as discussions on improving Nigeria’s health sector, and strengthen the already existing relationship.
