Under the Primary Health Care Improvement Program for Results (PforR), the World Bank Group is providing the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) with USD 27.7 million to increase the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) annual active membership and facilitate claims processing and payments for primary health care providers, including CHPS, Health Centers, and Maternity Homes.

With co-financing funding from the Global Financing Facility (GFF), Canada, the UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Operation (FCDO), and the GaviAlliance, the historic initiative is funded through a World Bank facility.

The initiative will be implemented from 2022 to 2025 for a period of four years. According on the Disbursement Linked Results (DLR) attained in accordance with the program’s Disbursement Linked Indicators (DLIs), funds is distributed.

The DLIs for the program include a growth in NHIS membership, more vulnerable individuals being enrolled in the Scheme, and better claim processing and payment for primary healthcare institutions.

The NHIA would enhance pertinent facets of the accreditation of healthcare providers, monitoring, and financing of primary healthcare services in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Ghana Health Service, and the Health Facility Regulatory Authority (HeFRA), under the facility.

The joint effort of the NHIA and the Social Protection Directorate of the Ministry of Gender, Children, and Social Protection (MoGCSP) will increase the number of destitute people who enroll in the Scheme, including widows, orphans, disabled people, women, and children.

Linking to the National Household Registry, which is also backed by the World Bank, will be used to accomplish this.
