Ghana to launch health ID

Ghana’s National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) plans to integrate with the national digital ID GhanaCard to move towards universal health coverage. Since its launch in 2019, over 15 million people have registered for a GhanaCard. The NHIA envisions that integration with the GhanaCard will enhance health insurance enrolment, curb fraudulent claims, and enhance efficiency by giving patients access to their healthcare information. A pilot mass registration exercise is set to be launched once a feasibility study is completed.
