NHIMA to mobilise more on the scheme


National Health Insurance Management Authority (NHIMA) says it will soon embark on a robust door to door campaign for more Zambians to join the national health Insurance scheme.

NHIMA Director General, James Kapesa, says the Authority is targeting to capture more people in the informal sector to register with NHIMA for quality healthcare.

Mr Kapesa said there is a need for more people especially in rural communities to appreciate the importance of joining the NHIMA program for improved health services.

ZANIS reports that Mr Kapesa said this at Kalene Mission Hospital in Ikelenge district as he concluded his tour of health care providers accredited to NHIMA in Northwestern Province.

The NHIMA Chief observed that much more needs to be done to facilitate information exchange between NHIMA, implementers of the scheme and the community for awareness to take place.

Meanwhile Kalene Mission Hospital Acting Medical Officer, Dr Mweene Mophini, called on NHIMA to ensure that more people in Ikelenge district are captured and mobilised to join the national health Insurance program for the hospital to increase its claims on health care.


  1. When everyone becoming members when will the lines in hospitals finish. Have all hospitals been upgraded to cater for all the current sick people. Are all medicine available in hospitals. My special medicines could not even be supplied by levy Mwanawasa hospital which I have been importing from UK for 4 years. I have evidence. Are all doctor’s enough to cater for available sick because many hospitals have trainees treating patients. Start by fixing the ministry then come to insurance at the end.

  2. You have a lot to do. For now this organisation is just pure theft of members money. Service provided is so pathetic. Its not worth of being called anything near health Management scheme. Pure theft !!!!

  3. Useless scheme. It made companies people work for who previously had good amedical schemes stop the scheme and now the employees go to que up at useless hospitals.

  4. It can’t work until we have enough professional doctors and all medication available in government hospitals or else we are sent to buy from pharmacies. Think positive please.
