Ghanaian actor and politician John Dumelo has weighed in on the sharp increase in the cost of dialysis treatment at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, emphasizing the need to include dialysis treatment in the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
Dumelo’s call comes after a widely circulated image on social media revealed that the price for dialysis had surged from GHC380 to GHC765, marking a 101 per cent increase.
In a tweet, the multifaceted celebrity questioned why dialysis treatment isn’t included in the NHIS, arguing that such an addition is both necessary and achievable.
“Dialysis treatment should be included under the NHIS. It can be done,” he posted.
