Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC) has commenced the enrollment of about ten thousand Ghanaian residents living along the oil and gas enclave onto the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) at no cost to beneficiaries.
The Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC) is carrying out this exercise, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
The core reason, according to the company, is to ease the burden of healthcare delivery on all its host communities following the current economic challenges in the country.
On day one of the registration exercise, on November 15, the Ghana National Gas Company GNGC, in collaboration with the NHIS, registered more than one thousand residents at Atuabo, where the exercise kicked off.
The company had anticipated that the Nzema enclave alone would produce more than one thousand beneficiaries.
But, the target could exceed following the interest generated by residents and the high numbers recorded on the first day. The exercise will continue in the next three days before moving to the other host communities across the country.
