According to the Commissioner, “with the renovation of health facilities alongside provision of equipment , drugs and capacity-building of health workers, Araya has come to stay and the State is capable of enrolling 200,000 people this year, but presently a total number of 42,200 have registered while efforts are being intensified to scale up State-wide soon”.

Dr. Soyinka also noted that the commitment of the State Government on the scheme has exposed the State to international communities which has brought about several commendations, financial, material and expertise support for the successful, implementation and sustainability of the scheme.

He then charged the accredited Health Management Organizations (HMOs) on the scheme to brace – up and reach out more to the Board of Trustees (BOT) and communities for a clear understanding of the scheme.

The Commissioner implored the residents of the State to embrace the Community Based Health Insurance Scheme, saying that it is the surest way to access qualitative health care services.
