(HBO) – A delegation from the Committee for Ethnic Affairs of the Hoa Binh People’s Council led by head of the committee Nguyen Thi Oanh had a working session on October 30 at the provincial Social Security Agency and the Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs to supervise the implementation of health insurance among the ethnic minority communities in the locality in the 2015-2018 period.
Nguyen Thi Oanh, head
of the Committee for Ethnic Affairs of the Hoa Binh People’s Council, head of
the provincial Party Committee’s Mass Mobilisation Commission and President of
the province’s Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee, addresses the session.
At the end of 2018, the coverage of health insurance in Hoa Binh
reached 96.6 percent of the local population. Allof the residents from ethnic
minority communities living in disadvantageous areas received free health
insurance in line with regulations.
The provincial Social Security Agency has fully applied
health insurance policies on ethnic minority communities in a timely manner,
ensuring the rights of people joining the insurance.
However, shortcomings and limitations have still lingered in
the implementation of health insurance policies among ethnic minority communities
in some localities.
Concluding the supervision session, Oanh, who is also head
of the provincial Party Committee’s Mass Mobilisation Commission and President
of the province’s Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee, asked the provincial
Social Security Agency and Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs to
continue promoting communications and the implementation of health insurance
policies for ethnic minority residents across the province.
It is necessary to mobilize resources for the improvement of
health care infrastructure and equipment, thus enhancing service quality, she
said, stressing the need for strengthening the inspection and settlement of
complaints and denouncements related to the implementation of health insurance
At the same time, the health insurance fund must be used in
an effective manner, she added.
Regarding the proposals of the two units, she said that the supervision
team will gather all ideas and forward them to relevant agencies for
consideration and adjustments to suit the reality./.
