Ssemaganda Moses Hope



The National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) Bill, currently awaiting approval by the Cabinet, has the potential to revolutionize healthcare access in Uganda. The proposed scheme would provide comprehensive health insurance coverage to all Ugandans for a small annual fee of 15,000 shillings.

The NHIS would address several key challenges in Uganda’s healthcare system:

Limited access: Currently, many Ugandans cannot afford to access quality healthcare, particularly those living in rural areas or with low incomes. The NHIS would bridge this gap, ensuring that everyone has access to the care they need, regardless of their financial situation.

High out-of-pocket expenses: Catastrophic healthcare costs are a major financial burden for many Ugandan households. The NHIS would significantly reduce out-of-pocket expenses, making healthcare more affordable and accessible.
Inequitable access: Healthcare access is unevenly distributed across Uganda, with urban areas having better access to facilities and services.
