Anambra  Partners NHIS To Accredit General Hospitals

Nigeria – Anambra State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Vincent Okpala has revealed that the state will partner National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS, to accredit General Hospitals in the state.

Dr. Okpala made the disclosure when the state Coordinator, NHIS, Mrs. Chinyere Aniebo paid him a visit at his office at the Jerome Udoji State Secretariat, Awka.

He adjudged the partnership as very necessary to ensure that state General Hospitals receive all the requirements needed for the accreditation since according to him, Governor Willie Obiano’s administration does not joke with health.
