……Harps on Principle of Collective Responsibility

295 persons living with disability have been registered into the Indigent Enrollee Adoption Initiative of the Delta State Contributory Health Commission, courtesy of the Director General and Chief Executive Officer of the Commission, Dr. Issac Akpoveta.

Drawn from the three senatorial districts of the state, they can now receive healthcare for the next one year, Free.

The registration which took place at the Commission’s headquaters in Asaba, saw the team of ICT in the Commission capture their data under a relaxed atmosphere, after which they were presented health insurance cards on the spot – a guarantee to access care in any health facility of their choice.

The gesture is in fulfilment of the promise of Dr. Isaac Akpoveta to the Executive of the Joint National Association of People Living With Disability, when they visited the Commission, that he would sponsor the registration of 250 of their members into the scheme – a gesture supplied by some Directors in the Commission, which increased the number of the beneficiaries to 295.

Dr. Akpoveta harped on the principle of collective responsibility and urged others to key into the programme, and reach out to vulnerable persons around them.
