Managing the Covid-19 Pandemic

 The HWB Team ensures that Government Covid-19 updates at local, state, and national levels are provided to the Onitsha traditional community. The team works closely with the Anambra State Ministry of Health COVID-19 team and the Onitsha North Local Government Area COVID-19 team in planning and implementing COVID-19 vaccinations. HWB also ensures that events such as title taking and burials that attract a large number of persons are Covid-19 compliant.

HWB manages this programme which  OnAF is promoting under the auspices of the Anambra State Health Insurance Scheme as implemented by the Anambra State Health Insurance Agency (ASHIA). Services provided by healthcare professionals registered with ASHIA  span different medical fields. The insurance covers health issues to a certain extent in most of these fields. Besides advocacy and publicity, HWB undertakes enrollment, and case management via health advice.
