World Bank approved grant to the Health Insurance Fund

Feb 29, 2008


The World Bank approved a six million US dollar grant to the Health Insurance Fund for the implementation of an insurance program for approximately 30,000 people in Lagos, Nigeria, for a period of five years. The Health Insurance Fund currently investigates a target group that consists of employees of small IT enterprises, each of which counts on average three to six employees. They are linked together through the Computer and Allied Products Dealers Association of Nigeria (CAPDAN IT), an association of IT enterprises in Lagos. The project was approved in June 2007. In January 2008 the Word Bank confirmed the availability of the funds for this program.

The new program will use the same healthcare infrastructure as is currently being upgraded for the existing Community Health Program in Lagos that provides insurance to market women.
