28 January 2016, 15:06 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) Chief Executive Officer, Simeon Ole Kirgotty has said that the NHIF board is proposing a financing model for all chronic diseases.

“This proposal will be implemented in due course. It’s efforts towards the attainment of Universal Healthcare Cover are a testament of the commitment to a wider national coverage of more than 25 million Kenyans,” he said.
