Anambra State Government in partnership with United Nations (UN) has launched a Data Operations Centre and Mobile Technology Health Insurance Platform to boost Universal Health Coverage in the state.
UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Mr Edward Kallon, inaugurating the Data Operations Centre (DOC), Mobile Technology Health Insurance Platform assured that UN was committed to healthcare system projects across the state.
The UN is an international organisation founded in 1945, currently made up of 193 member states. Its works are guided by purposes and principles contained as in its founding Charter.
The inauguration was part of activities scheduled for Mr Kallon’s two-day working visit to Anambra.
He commended the State Government for the reforms carried out in the health sector through the leadership of Dr Vincent Okpala.
According to him, the DOC is strategic in making informed decisions and policies to drive better healthcare access to residents.
“The centre meets international best standards and I want to urge other states to visit Anambra and copy the reforms that the state has implemented in the health sector.
“We are impressed at the level of technology being maximised by the Anambra State Health Insurance Agency (ASHIA), which is to ensure access to quality healthcare in the state.
“As an International body, we are committed to giving high technical assistance to the state to ensure quality healthcare delivery.’’ he said.
The Resident Coordinator is the highest ranking representative of the United Nations Development System (UNDS) at the country level with the responsibility to lead UN country teams and ensure system-wide accountability on the ground for the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework.
Commissioner for Health, Dr Vincent Okpala said the partnership and funding from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and European Union (EU) had contributed significantly toward the strengthening of healthcare delivery in the state.
According to him, Kallon’s visit is important as he will see the projects carried out through the state’s partnership with the international body and its affiliates, WHO and EU.
Dr Okpala noted that the state’s continued partnership with the UN had yielded many benefits in areas including healthcare emergency management, financing, policy and governance.
“Your support and funding informed the adoption model of our healthcare financing, where the state government enrolled people into ASHIA as well as the Data Operations Centre.
“We thank you so much for assisting the health system of the state and supporting us in our quest for quicker and easier access to quality healthcare,’’ he said.
The Data Operations Centre was launched at the State Ministry of Health, while the Mobile Technology Health Insurance Platform was launched at Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia. (MOI)
