The Bonny Community Health Insurance Programme is a community-based health insurance initiative that is geared towards providing access to affordable, sustainable, and quality healthcare services without the beneficiaries (in this instance, residents of Bonny Island) making out-of-pocket expenses when accessing medical care. 

It is facilitated by Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG) in partnership with Rivers State Government and Bonny Kingdom. Three health facilities (Bonny Model Primary Health Centre, Finima Health centre and Bonny Zonal Hospital) are currently healthcare service providers on the programme.

The Scheme has a Governing Board that is representative of the partnership between the sponsors. The Governing board provides required governance for the initiative, leveraging on the experiences of its members. 

To date, over 11,558 persons have enrolled on the programme as it continues to fulfil its mandate of Universal Health Care (UHC) for all. For NLNG, this initiative allows the company to fulfil its CSR obligations in supporting health care services that are aligned to the SDG 3 – Good Health and Well-Being.
