THE National Health Insurance Management Authority (NHIMA) says it will soon embark on a robust drive for more Zambians to join the national health insurance scheme.
NHIMA Director-General, James Kapesa, said the Authority is targeting to capture more people in the informal sector to register with NHIMA for quality healthcare.
Mr Kapesa said there is a need for more people especially in rural communities to appreciate the importance of joining the NHIMA program for improved health services.
Mr Kapesa said this as he concluded his tour of health care providers accredited to NHIMA in Northwestern Province.
The NHIMA Chief observed that much more needs to be done to facilitate information exchange between NHIMA, implementers of the scheme and the community for awareness to take place.
