The recent meeting of the Council of Ministers has approved documents related to the setting
up of Medical Insurance Scheme by the Vanuatu National Provident Fund (VNPF) for workers
troughout Vanuatu.
The Prime Minister Charlot Salwai made the revelation to Vila Times on Friday last week.
He said the appointment of Task Force will be made soon to work closer with the VNPF towards
the setting up of the new scheme which will be very profitable for all workers in the public
sector and the private sector.
This new initiative is taken in regards to the setting up of private hospitals in line with the policy
of the current government to improve health facilities in Vanuatu.
With the new Medical Insurance Scheme, workers around Vanuatu who are members of VNPF
will find easy to get treatments in private hospital. Once Medical Insurance Scheme launched, it
will attract investors who wish to venture into health service in the country.
