Ghana’s National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) was established by an Act of Parliament in 2003 (Act 650) to provide financial risk protection against the cost of health care services for all residents of Ghana.

The object of the Scheme is to attain universal health insurance coverage for residents and those visiting the country.
