    Default Mills concerned about the sustainability of NHIS

    President John Evans Atta Mills has noted that the 54 per cent of payments made by the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) on the cost of medicine for clients is unsustainable.

    "This high expenditure on medicines alone poses a major threat to the sustainability of our National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS)," he said in a speech read on his behalf at the Diamond Jubilee Celebration of the Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana (PSGH) in Kumasi on Thursday.

    President Mills, who was represented by Mr Robert Rojo Mettle Nunoo, Deputy Minister of Health, said a monitoring exercise undertaken by the NHIA revealed high prevalence of prescriptions of antibiotics, especially expensive brands of the drug and pain killers.

    "Why can't they encourage our pharmaceutical industry? GHANA PAAAA DIEEEE hmmmm..."

    Big talk no action. They' ll rather pay through their noses and heap accolades on the whiteman's products than encourage their own. It will amaze you how some Ghanaians look down on herbs let alone appreciate home made pharmaceutical products.
