In recent times, many states of the federation have attempted to implement a social health insurance scheme. This is with a view to achieving universal health coverage in their states. One of the main target populations of the scheme is the informal sector workers. There are still concerns about whether enough pieces of evidence were used to establish the scheme across the country. This perspective article briefly highlights some evidence to support the informal sectors willingness to participate and pay for a statewide health insurance scheme in Nigeria.
