Kaffy Lands AVON Health Insurance Deal


The campaign for health insurance deal for Nigerian performing arts industry championed by veteran dancer, Kafayat Shafau-Ameh, also known as Kaffy, has received strategic support from Avon HMO, a leading health management organization.

Through this first-of-its-kind partnership, Nigerian creatives will now enjoy healthcare coverage tailored to their needs through the Kaffy Health Plan by Avon HMO.

Currently, less than 5% of Nigerians have health insurance and with the youth constituting a bulk of the population, AVON HMO’s new plans will further improve access to quality healthcare.

At the launch of the new health plans, Kaffy noted that the new health plans couldn’t have come at a better time, considering that an estimated 98% of Nigerian dancers lacked health insurance cover. She also identified a lack of awareness about wellbeing as a bane of the creative industry.

“This is the first of its kind milestone for the performing arts industry particularly, dancers. The journey to a health insurance deal for my artistic community has been a long time coming.

‘Unfortunately, we cannot bring back to those whom we have lost, quite avoidably due to lack of access to basic health care. However, this is just the first part of the work.”

To underscore the importance of health to dancers, Kaffy explained, “Dance is a creative expression that comes from within. Thus, the spirit, soul and body must be in a healthy state. AVON is a market leader, and we are delighted to partner with them to further deepen health coverage among creatives.

The Kaffy health plans offer annual coverage, and are flexible, with options for individuals and families. This is inclusive and it ensures that no one else is left behind”
