This financial injection comes as part of ongoing efforts to enhance healthcare delivery across the nation.

The release of these funds underscores the government's commitment to improving access to quality healthcare services for all citizens, regardless of their socio-economic status. Mixed-tier healthcare providers play a crucial role in the delivery of healthcare services, serving as a bridge between public and private healthcare facilities.

The Authority announced this in a statement issued on Wednesday, May 1, and signed by the Acting Chief Executive, Dr. Da-Costa Aboagye.

According to the NHIA, the funds released on Tuesday, April 30, covered January and February 2024 lower-tier and November 2023 upper-tier facilities.
