Professor Wasike Leaks The Reason Why NHIF Is Not Used To Treat Cancer (Video)

There has always been a major issue with the use of NHIF cards whereby it is restricted to treating some diseases. This happens as many of us use it to treat minor illnesses but becomes useless when it comes to serious health conditions. Professor Ronald Wasike has revealed the reason behind this on live TV.

Speaking on NTN morning interview, Wasike said that there is a lot of corruption in the headquarters and among the doctors. He said that those people in county headquarters are busy struggling to steal the funds contributed.

"NHIF has not been efficient in payment of cancer treatments as a result of corruption; we have cases of the fund being robed by both the workers and the doctors at the headquarters," said Prof. Wasike.

He said that workers and doctors are busy stealing the funds which could have been used to treat people. However, he promised breakthrough in this because of president Uhuru's recent moves in the health sector.
