National Health Insurance Fund, NHIF is the oldest government insurance scheme in Africa. As the primary provider of health insurance in Kenya it is mandated in providing access to quality and affordable health care for all Kenyans. NHIF registers all eligible members from both informal and formal sectors. However membership is compulsory for those in formal sectors while it is voluntary for those working in the informal sectors.

Registration is open to all Kenyans, to register go to the any Huduma Center and fill NHIF membership form.

To facilitate timely remittance of member contributions and maintenance of up to date payment information for individual accounts, Nhif partnered with Safaricom, to provide flexible and convenient platform for remittance of monthly insurance premium contribution.

There is precedent for moving Kenya towards Universal Health Care. The Kenyan Constitution states that every Kenyan has a right to quality health care and recognises the role of the government in removing barriers to access.Therefore the Kenya government's commitment to providing health care for all of its citizens is clearly moving in a right direction.
