Vice President Jallow Launches Transvie Social Mutual in the Gambia


Gambia’s Vice President Muhammed B.S. Jallow on Saturday launched the Transvie Social Mutual Insurance Company in The Gambia at the Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara International Conference Center.

The launching attracted an array of senior government officials, health practitioners and the private sector. 

Transvie is a reference social mutual in Senegal, Ivory Coast and Togo with more than eight hundred public and private companies under contract.

The vice president Muhammed B S Jallow during the launching stated that president Barrow’s government has put in a lot of premium in terms of improving the health sector of the country reaffirming what Dr. Bittaye said, VP Jallow said that health service is very expensive and the government cannot do it all. 

Vice President Jallow Highlighted that fees being charged at health facilities might be cheap for some but others would not be able to afford and that is the reality because if specialists are bought in fees would be higher and government would not be able to afford that increment and that’s where the importance of health insurance comes in to take care of that risk.

Director of Health service, Gynecologist ,Dr. Mustapha Bittaye, thanked transvie Gambia for coming up with this idea to help reduce the hardship people face to get access to health. Adding that as a ministry, it’s a concern and a priority as the government cannot do it all by covering all the sectors.

He further said that one of the ministry’s biggest problem is to make sure that every person gets access to health without moving, but right now people are moving about 5km just to access good health and that there aim is to reduce it to 4-3km for people not to walk much. 

The Senegalese based company focuses on Social Mutual Health Provident Micro-Insurance.The company has set up in The Gambia with the aim of providing a quality response to the Gambian population in terms of health coverage.
