We are a network of civic/community based organizations who aim to collectively enhance community participation in health in Zimbabwe. The CWGH was formed in early 1998 to take up health issues of common concern. The approximately 40 organizations in the CWGH include national membership organizations that have branches across the country, while others have areas-specific membership (such as the residents associations). The CWGH was registered as a trust in 2002 and transformed into a Private Voluntary Organization (PVO) in 2014, Registration No: 01/2014. CWGH has district level chapters in about 40 districts across Zimbabwe.
