Aware Of Edu Afya?


Aware Of Edu Afya?

It’s my hope that parents are aware that every public secondary school child has a comprehensive medical cover courtesy of the government. I bet most of you don’t know.The National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) has implemented a comprehensive medical cover to cater for students in public secondary schools.

Through the cover called ‘Edu- Afya’, the government paid a premium of Sh1,350 per student targeting three million students who were in public secondary schools to fulfill the Big Four Agenda – provision of affordable health care.

Edu- Afya package was launched to enable students to access quality health services and thereby easing the burden from their parents and guardians. Thus, The Ministry of Education signed a contract with NHIF to provide medical Insurance for all public secondary schools for the duration of the study.

The medical cover caters to any student who is in a public secondary school, registered by NHIF through the NEMIS database.
