Compulsory Health Insurance Scheme to Start in Liberia

A National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), a compulsory medical premium intended for citizens to insure their lives, is expected to come into force in the country.

If approved by the Liberian Legislature, the country will become the second in the sub-region after Ghana and third on the continent after Rwanda to do so. The Chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on Health, Dr. Peter Coleman, who made the disclosure, said it would afford Liberians the opportunity to have access to basic health needs.
