Health Financing in Nigeria: Prospect of the New Insurance Act

Health Financing in Nigeria

In May this year, President Buhari signed the new National Health Insurance Authority Bill 2022 into law, repealing the National Health Insurance Scheme Act of 2004. The new law has made health insurance mandatory for all Nigerians including legal residents.

Is this the game changer we have been expecting in healthcare delivery in Nigeria, particularly in financing? This will be the focus of the second edition of the Madiba Webinar Series.

Our speakers include Prof. M.N. Sambo, the Director General of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Dr. Yewande Ogundeji, a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Calgary and Dr Tobi Oluwatola, the Executive Director of the Centre for Journalism Innovation and Development (CJID).

You are cordially invited to the Webinar Series, which will be moderated by Frederick Adetiba, the Executive Director of the Madiba Foundation for Good Governance.

Date: Thursday, 20 October 2022
Time: 3 pm (WAT)
Venue: Zoom
