HMO boss urges Nigerians to key into NHIS
To ensure a healthy society, the Executive Director, Wellness Health Management Organisation (HMO), Adetutu Afolabi, has urged Nigerians to prioritise their wellbeing by enrolling in the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
Speaking at an event in Lagos, Afolabi said keying into the NHIS would help to improve healthcare indices in the country.
She added that the concept of health insurance was for people to make plans for the future regarding their health.
Afolabi said it was in the organisation’s bid to provide accessible, quality and affordable healthcare to women that the HMO recently adopted three women for its ‘Wellness for Life’ initiative.
She added: “The women who were selected during the Hadassah Healing Conference 2019 would have access to quality, accessible health care for the rest of their lives.”
Afolabi said that women as caregivers most times ignore their own health essentials, hence the need to ensure that they remain a priority where health necessities is concerned.
