Chiawelo Community Practice (CCP) is part of the Ward-based PHC Outreach Team (or WBOT) at Chiawelo Community Health Centre (CHC) and a part of National Health Insurance (NHI) and Primary Health Care (PHC) Re-engineering).
Community Health Workers (CHWs) have been visiting residents in their home to register families and do household assessments. A doctor-clinical associate-nurse team at CCP are currently providing registered families in Wards 11, 12, 15, 16 & 19 with ALL health care services daily, by appointment and with a good attitude. CHWs are also involved in many health promotion initiatives. A key element is engaging stakeholders. We are having a stakeholder workshop to engage YOU in building NHI in these wards.
