Abstract:
The study explores the implementation process of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) policy within the context of the North/South divide (Northern and Southern Ghana); and the rural-urban spatial location in Ghana-a context that has received little attention from implementation researchers yet is very significant to understanding implementation outcomes across regions in Ghana. Four district mutual health insurance schemes were used as cases. These are Nanumba North and South mutual schemes in the Northern region (North) and Ashiedu Keteke and Osu Klottey mutual schemes in the Greater Accra region (South). The analytic process involved in understanding implementation is made simpler by the naturally afforded opportunity to make geographic comparison between the NHIS in poor, remote, under-served regions such as those of the North with those of relatively better-off urban regions like the South.
