Flavia Kabahenda, a lawmaker from Uganda, has praised Zambia for its efforts in improving access to healthcare for all of its citizens. This is a significant step towards achieving universal access to health services, and Zambia should be commended for its dedication to this important cause.
The Ugandan lawmaker has praised Zambia’s efforts to enhance healthcare accessibility. Specifically, the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) implemented by the National Health Insurance Management Authority (NHIMA) has been recognized as a commendable intervention by the Zambian government to improve the delivery of health services to its citizens. Ms. Kabahenda has expressed her appreciation for these efforts.
The lawmaker emphasized that access to healthcare is a fundamental right that enables individuals to enjoy other rights. She commended the Zambian government for its efforts to ensure that all citizens have access to primary healthcare services, noting that this demonstrates the country’s respect for human rights.
Ms. Kabahenda, who serves as the Chairperson for the Uganda Parliamentary Forum on Social Protection, has praised Zambia’s efforts to enhance access to healthcare. She believes that investing in the health sector is crucial for the overall development of a country, as unhealthy citizens are unable to contribute to the economy. Ms. Kabahenda emphasizes that without proper investment in healthcare, investments in other sectors may not yield significant results.
