Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to ensure that people in low income households and who have informal jobs can have access to health financing or insurance for themselves and families.
It's all part of making a better world.
People living with the least income can afford and can have access to good health care possible to treat their ailments, eradicate unscientific self medication and unorthodox practices in search of medical support among low income households
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by artisans, people self employed, and those whose combined household income is around 700 Naira per day.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Public health financing can create a sustainable model to incorporate people from low income households to have access to health care
Established need for private health insurance agents to promote health access for informal workers
Reduced unorthodox practices among low income families when in need of health care
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Advocate my research work and findings among private health insurance organisations, local government of my community and other stakeholders, and share it with National ministry of health and influencers that can lead to engagement that will reversed the current gap in the NHIS policy of Nigeria.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
