Kwara Health Insurance Enrols 3,878 In New Office
Kwara State Health Insurance Agency has inaugurated another regional office in Lafiagi, Edu local government area of the state to serve the people of Kwara North.
LEADERSHIP reports that a total of 3, 878 persons have been captured for the health insurance scheme in the area.
The opening of Lafiagi’s office came two weeks after opening a regional office at General Hospital, Offa to render services for communities under Offa and Oyun local governments in Kwara South.
The Lafiagi’s office, which is located inside the General Hospital Lafiagi, is designed for communities in Edu, Patigi and some parts of Ifelodun local governments.
At the event, the wife of Kwara State governor, Amb. Olufolake AbdulRazaq, said the step further demonstrated that the government is sensitive to the yearnings of the people and their right to a decent life.
Represented by the wife of the chairman of Edu local government, Mrs Aminat Aliyu, the governor’s wife implored the people in the catchment areas to embrace the programme to enhance their health status.
She hailed the leadership of Kwara State Health Insurance Agency for their ceaseless efforts to make the health policies and programmes of the administration a reality.
Earlier, the executive secretary of the state Health Insurance Agency, Dr Olubunmi Jetawo-Winter, had said that the move to open regional offices in some parts of the state was to widen the awareness of people about the concept and deepen their access to affordable healthcare services.
“Today, we are here and excited to officially open the second hub in the state, in the great town of Lafiagi. This office will serve Edu, Patigi, and parts of Ifelodun LGAs of the state. These regional hubs will provide the same services to the people in these catchment areas, just as we would have provided from our office in Ilorin,” she said.
