The Adamawa State Government on Monday launched a contributory pension scheme for its people.

Governor Ahmadu Fintiri said the scheme which is operated in partnership with the Federal Government, is his administration’s strategy to ensure all residents of Adamawa State have access to needed preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services.

He said the scheme is designed to offer health services with sufficient quality and equitable delivery without subjecting the people to financial hardship.

“The fundamental objective of the scheme is to create a platform that pools resources to enable citizens of the state access healthcare without paying at the point of access,” Fintiri explained.

He said the Governing Board of the Adamawa State Contributory Health Management Agency is charged with providing strategic leadership of ensuring all residents of the state are enrolled under the health insurance scheme.

“We went on to get the buy-in of the Organized Labour who willingly signed a Service Level Agreement to join the Health Insurance Scheme,” he added, commending the Leadership of Organized Labour for joining the partnership to ease the burden of healthcare on the workers of Adamawa State.

He said the scheme is a sure route to victory over healthcare challenges and urged all citizens to join it.

Fintiri announced that the government has earmarked Equity Fund as provided for in the law establishing the agency to incrementally expand health coverage for vulnerable populations across all the 226 wards of Adamawa State.

“This is in tandem with the Global Best Practice to achieve Universal Health Coverage which comfortably aligns with our guiding philosophy of ensuring ‘no one is left behind and nothing is left untouched,” he said.
