Avon Healthcare Limited has partnered with the United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc to develop well-tailored and unique health plans for children.

The collaboration to develop the new health plans became necessary due to the gap that exists in the area of child healthcare.

Both organisations have also joined forces to ensure the achievement of universal health coverage in Nigeria especially for children.

The new healthcare plan tagged ‘the UBA Kiddies Health Plan’ has two variants – the UBA Kiddies Plus and Prestige – which allows individuals with UBA Kiddies or UBA Teens account easy access to affordable healthcare services without paying out of their pocket.

Specifically, this healthcare plan will allow Avon HMO to tap into an existing base of thousands of customers who have active UBA accounts or seek to open these accounts to enable them access great healthcare services.

Speaking further on the partnership, head of retail sales and partnerships at Avon HMO Babajide Oyeduntan said this initiative is in line with the organisation’s reputation for innovatively expanding healthcare access through strategic collaborations with forward-thinking companies.

Mr Oyeduntan said, “Over the years, we have launched a series of products in partnership with various entities with the overall aim of improving healthcare access. Only recently, we launched the Kaffy Health Plan for the entertainment industry, as well as bespoke health plans for women with Shecluded – a female-oriented financial services company. Therefore, the newly launched Kiddies Health Plan in partnership with UBA further emphasises our commitment to securing the health of our children and improving healthcare access for all Nigerians.”

Head of personal banking at UBA group Ogechi Altraide said UBA is excited to partner with Avon to give UBA customers the opportunity to enjoy access to dental care, eye tests/surgeries, back-to-school checks and many more, which she stated are part of the organisation’s promise to help its customers get more value from their loyalty to the bank.
