The Federal Government has approved the enrolment of corps members into the National Health Insurance Scheme.
Director-General of National Youth Service Corps, Brig.-Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, made the disclosure on Tuesday.
Kazaure told newsmen in Akure at the opening ceremony of the Annual Management Conference, which coincided with the 45th anniversary of the NYSC.
The DG said as part of partnership deal with Federal Ministry of Health, the orientation camp of the scheme had a consultant from the Federal Medical Centre.
Kazaure commended the corps members that participated in the Osun State gubernatorial election for being good ambassadors of the scheme.
“This annual management conference is for the top managers to come together and critically review the operations and policies of the scheme by setting an agenda so as to improve on the programme in subsequent years,” he said.
