Who we are
The National Health Fund (NHF) is an agency of the Ministry of Health and was established in 2003 by the National Health Fund Act. The NHF provides financial support to our national healthcare system in order to improve its effectiveness and the affordability of healthcare for the Jamaican population.
What we do

-Delivery of in-patient and outpatient pharmacy services for the public health sector. This includes the management of the medical warehouse and of over 118 pharmacy locations in the public health system, providing full time and scheduled services.
-Provide grants to institutions to improve health care delivery including infrastructure development, training, disaster preparedness, medical equipment and transportation. Project management is an important part of our work which extends to not only internal projects but major projects for our parent Ministry.
-Support multiple health-promotion programmes to aid in the prevention, reduction and management of non-communicable and communicable diseases.The NHF is ISO 9001:2015 certified and is therefore focused on continuous improvement of our processes to ensure customer satisfaction for both internal and external customers.
