The National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) led by its Chief Executive; Dr. Lydia Dsane-Selby on Friday, June 11, 2021 joined several high-profile personalities to participate in the Green Ghana Tree Planting Exercise dubbed “The Green Ghana Project”.

The Chief Executive together with her Deputies in charge of Operations & Admin / HR, Mrs. Vivian Addo-Cobbiah and Mrs. Yaa Pokuaa Baiden among other NHIS staff planted more than fifteen (15) trees at the premises of the Greater Accra NHIA Regional Office.

This serves as the Authority’s way of contributing to this key national exercise aimed at protecting the ecosystem against adverse degradation.

The Green Ghana Project is a government of Ghana initiative of preserving and protecting the environment and forests by planting five million trees in one day.

Speaking after the tree planting exercise, CEO of NHIA, Dr. Lydia Dsane-Selby encouraged Ghanaians to embark on this worthy course and reaffirmed the NHIA’s commitment to supporting Government’s objective of ‘greening’ our environment.

Dr. Lydia Dsane-Selby indicated that aside the environmental preservation value of this exercise, this project will impact positively on the health of individuals which is of keen interest to the National Health Insurance Scheme. She reiterated that the tree planting exercise will be replicated in all NHIS regional and district offices across the country.
