Airtel Mobile Commerce Zambia, a subsidiary of Airtel Networks Zambia trading as Airtel Money, has announced a partnership with the National Health Insurance Management Authority (NHIMA) to facilitate e-collection of members’ contributions through Airtel Money.
Under the partnership, Airtel Money will provide NHIMA with an efficient solution for collecting and managing contributions and penalties from individuals and institutions.
Airtel Money Director James Chona said his organization is excited to work side by side with the Zambian Government in realising the promise of universal healthcare services to all Zambians through an easy, convenient, secure and seamless mode of payment.

The National Health Insurance Management Authority is established pursuant to section 4 of the National Health Insurance Act No. 2 of 2018.
The purpose of the Act is to ensure that all Zambian citizens and established residents have equitable access to high quality essential health services, regardless of their socio-economic status.
