We have designed four major programmes that will carter for different population segments in Imo State namely, the Tertiary Institutions Social Health Insurance Programme (TISHIP), the Basic Health Care Provision Fund (BHCPF), the Formal Sector Programme and the IMOCARE Health Insurance Programme.
In line with the global mandate for Universal Health Coverage that ensures that no one is left behind in accessing quality healthcare in an equitable manner irrespective of one’s socioeconomic status, we will do our best in ensuring Imo and her good people are part of this global paradigm.
It is important to state that in the course of assignment, will welcome suggestions, advise, input, support and all forms of collaboration that will make us achieve our mandate. The impact will be a healthy, productive and secured Imo that will serve us better.
God bless Imo State
