Free Healthcare For All Cocoa Farmers - NDC Manifesto

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has promised to provide Free Primary Healthcare for all cocoa farmers if it becomes the next government after the December elections.

The NDC in its manifesto launched in Accra on Monday, 7 September 2020 said it will exempt all cocoa farmers from the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) premium payment for secondary and tertiary care.

It also said it will create a biometric database of all cocoa farmers and make available at all cocoa clinics so that at any point in time, cocoa farmers and their dependents can have access to free healthcare at the cocoa clinics in the various cocoa growing regions in the country.

The manifesto said, “In addition to the existing Cocoa Clinics in Accra, Tafo (Eastern Region) Debiso and Kumasi, the next NDC government will ensure that the COCOBOD builds well-equipped hospitals in each of the cocoa-growing regions.”

They also promised to revive and broaden the scope of the Cocoa Roads Project implemented under the past NDC Government to cover more cocoa-growing areas.

This, according to them, will facilitate the easy evacuation of cocoa beans, as well as the rapid development of the cocoa-growing areas.

With regards to pension, the manifesto said, “the next NDC government will ensure the establishment of a pension scheme for cocoa farmers so they can enjoy pensions in their old age as already captured under the pensions sector.”
