Mali to switch to digital ID health cards

The national health scheme administrator of Mali Conseil d’administration de la Caisse d’assurance maladie obligatoire (CANAM) has given 1st April as the switchover date for the digital ID health cards. CANAM is switching to digital ID to reduce fraud. The move comes at a time when there are many areas in the north of the country which are not under government control and many people there may not be able to enrol for the digital ID.
