According to them, the NHIS does not even cover paracetamol in most of their hospitals which very disturbing.

Below is their full statement

PRESS RELEASE

MIE KUKUM DEMONSTRATION AGAINST COLLAPSING NHIS AND HEALTH CARE DELIVERY IN THE VOLTA REGION

We are demonstrating to draw the attention of the government to the bizarre health care system and non-functioning of the health insurance scheme in the Volta Region.

People go to the hospital with the insurance cards but it does not work, they have to pay for the drugs they are given, even for common paracetamol, plaster and vitamin C. We are now experiencing cash and carry and the region.

The reason for this problem is as a result of the government's inability to pay for claims to the facilities on time.

The government is owing some of the facilities for a period ranging from about nine months to eleven months, making it difficult for hospitals to acquire drugs for the hospitals.

This phenomenon has created a tetra headed problem, where the hospitals are owing the central medical stores and utility providers in the region.

The demonstration dub MIE KUKUM meaning we are dying is scheduled to take place on 31st May 2019 in the regional capital Ho.

We encourage all political parties and the general public to participate in this demonstration.

Signed

Chris Apetorgbor
