The Director, FCT Health Insurance Scheme (FHIS), Dr Ahmed Danfulani has advocated for adequate policies to drive and achieve the agenda of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) before the year 2030.
Danfulani made the call in Abuja during a rally to acknowledge the effort of FHIS and to gather support towards achieving the goal of UHC before the deadline.
According to him, there is need for adequate policies to ensure that we have universal health coverage in this country, especially for the residents of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
“To achieve this, there must be collective activities by all healthcare providers to ensure that we have quality healthcare services.
More importantly, all of us must come together to achieve UHC by the year 2030, UHC requires that nobody must be left behind, everybody must be carried along,” he said.
Danfulani commended the Federal Government for signing the 2014 UHC Act into law that gave birth to the Basic Health Care Provision Fund (BHCPF), adding that it was in the right direction.
Speaking also, the FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello, said that the FCTA was committed to keeping the promise of meeting the deadline of 2030 for UHC for all and sundry in the FCT.
The rally took off from the FHIS office in the Central Area, down to Area 10 through the Festival road to Area 11.
