The National Social Security Fund has begun registering local village officials and their constituents in order to facilitate Health Equity Fund services from the government.
Cheav Bunrith, director of the NSSF policy division, said village representatives in six Phnom Penh districts will be registered first so they can begin facilitating free health care for villagers who can access Health Equity Fund cards.
“The NSSF has launched a campaign to register Health Equity Fund services in six districts this week and we will do the same in another six districts next week,” said Mr Bunrith.
According to a NSSF report, officials will try to complete the registration across the country in 2017 in order for poor villagers to access free health care by 2018.
Tep Prom Mony, Niroth commune chief, said yesterday that she is collecting documents from village officials and villagers who qualify for the health cards.
