Players in the insurance sector are strategising on the best ways of advancing health insurance in the country as they prepare for their 2017 annual meeting.

The Insurance Institute of Malawi (IIM) is expected to have the issue as part of their top agenda as they converge for their 2017 annual lake conference in Mangochi next week.

For some time now, there have been queries on issues such as full and partial health insurance cover, and access to the services.

According to Chimwemwe Kanyenda who is Chairperson of the Organising Committee of the conference, they have chosen the Helaht sector because only a handful of people in Malawi have access to health insurance.

This is mainly due to the fact that a majority of Malawians cannot afford health insurance and depend on public health institutions when in need medical attention.

Apart from that, some are not even are of the various companies that offering their services in health insurance.

The conference has in previous years offered captains in the insurance industry an opportunity to bang heads on how to improve the field and tap ideas from global insurance trends.

The conference is this year expected to be held under the theme Business Unusual.

The Insurance Institute of Malawi is the arm of the insurance industry in Malawi that deals with education and training.

 Its main objective is to promote professionalism in the insurance industry through education and training. The Institute started operating in 1978.

It has been administering examinations on behalf of the Chartered Insurance Institute of London and the Insurance Institute of South Africa.

    After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment. Is there a way you can remove me from that service? Cheers!|
