The idea of its creation was in November 2018 in Dschang, a town in the west region of Cameroon where its first ever meeting was held. At this meeting the first executive bureau was appointed and a strategic plan proposed. The Health Organisation Welfare (HOW) became legalized on the 22nd of July 2019. This town was equally the first for our activities and engagement with the communities. HOW was founded by a group of public health experts who were concerned with the rights of the local communities in a global context, especially those in hard-to-reach areas and those rendered vulnerable. These include, but are not limited to minority groups such as widows, displaced women and their families, school drop-outs, orphans, refugees and vulnerable population as well as those infected with stigmatized conditions and affected persons who are all main beneficiaries of HOW’s programs.

The organisation was born in response to the recurrent outbreaks of diseases, growing population of Internal Displaced Persons (IDPs) from the southwest, northwest and northern regions of Cameroon and refugees residing in Cameroon, from west and central Africa. A pioneer group of public health experts, epidemiologists, physicians, medical laboratory scientists, nurses and other well-wishers decided to focus on serving the global communities with developing health initiatives needed to strengthen individual and societal self-reliance and self-determination.

By the end of 2019, we quickly became interested on not only serving those rendered vulnerable, but advocating for those who are distressed and jumped into locally endemic diseases. Today , focusing on global health, we work  with key stakeholders to prevent , control and treat deadly diseases, accelerating access to EPI vaccines, reducing maternal, neonatal ,infant, and child mortality, improve access to contraceptives use, modelling disease transmission, provide adaptive solution to climate changes, including environmental factors that might be linked to  pollution and global warm ,ensure health security, make assistive technology available to those who need it, and strengthen health systems.
