 1. Job Title: Consultant to Support the National Health Insurance Scheme in the Design of the Health Insurance Under One Roof Framework towards the achievement of UHC in Nigeria

Job ID: 2001505
Location: Nigeria
Schedule: Full-time
Grade: No grade
Contract duration: 30 days
Contractual Arrangement: Individual service contractor


  • To support the National Health Insurance Scheme in the Design of the Health Insurance Under One Roof Framework towards achievement of UHC in Nigeria.
  • The NHIS is established by ACT 35 of 1999 (CAP N42, LFN 2004) and saddled with the responsibility of providing health insurance coverage for all Nigerians and all legal residents. The NHIS commenced operations in 2009 and has had single-digit coverage due to challenges which include; constitutional, operational difficulties and failure of states to buy-in.
  • In order to encourage the states to buy-in into health insurance in the nation’s quest for Universal Health Coverage (UHC), NHIS decentralized the implementation of Health Insurance to the states in 2015. As a result of this strategic move, 34 States have already established functional health insurance and complementary schemes and are at different levels in the process of the implementation.
  • Although the decentralization of health insurance was kick-started by the NHIS with support from key stakeholders, domestication was done by the states to fit their local peculiarities. This domestication which aligns with state priorities has resulted in variations in the design and operational modalities of the various schemes. There is a need to provide a common mechanism for coordinating and integrating these states schemes for efficiency and synergy while ensuring risk equalization across State pools.
  • This makes a case for the health insurance under one roof, which is an innovative approach for effective coordination within the health insurance space in Nigeria. This is to avoid duplication of efforts, streamline the roles of NHIS and respective SSHIAs, ensure risk equalization across State pools, while delineating the functions of other stakeholders including the private sector towards population coverage on basic minimum package of health services.
  • In light of the above, the NHIS has requested WHO to provide technical assistance towards achieving the above.

  • Articulate the resolutions arising from stakeholder consultations and desk into a single stakeholder owned blueprint for Health Insurance Under One Roof
