National Health Insurance Authority introduces free medical screening for Ghanaians

The  Chief Executive Officer  of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Dr. Da Costa Aboagye, has announced a forthcoming initiative that will enable Ghanaians to access free medical checkups at any health facility on their birthdays.

This project aims at transforming the healthcare landscape by prioritising preventive care and reducing the prevalence of non-communicable diseases in the country.

Speaking to the media interview in Accra, Dr. Aboagye disclosed that the committee overseeing the implementation of this initiative is in the final stages of stakeholder engagement.

Dr. Aboagye added that this initiative underscores the NHIA’s commitment to enhancing access to healthcare services for Ghanaians and promoting proactive health management strategies.

By providing free medical checkups on birthdays, he insisted that NHIA seeks to empower individuals to take charge of their health and address potential health concerns early.

He said, “Now we are offering every Ghanaian the opportunity to go to any health facility on their date of birth or month of birth to at least check their vitals once a month.”

“We are almost done with the work, and we will be starting very soon … we have really worked hard to ensure this intervention is actually implemented at the earliest possible time”, Dr. Aboagye Dacosta added.
