Welcome to the homepage of the ‘’African Women’s Health Foundation’’

The African women’s health foundation is a Non-Government Organisation NGO that deals exclusively with health issues concerning women on the African continent.

The extent of women’s health problems

Among the very many problems that exist, we have highlighted the following:

  1. The chance of a women dying during pregnancy, labour, childbirth and after birth is far higher in the sub-Sahara Africa than in any other region of the world.

  2. Death of a child during pregnancy, labour, childbirth and in the first month after birth is alarmingly higher in sub-Sahara Africa than in any other region of the world.

  3. There is paucity of information about health issues among African women, specifically on the following subjects: pregnancy, labour, childbirth, post-delivery care, killer diseases and healthy living.



Our mission

It includes the following:

  1. To highlight the medical and social issues which affect women and raise the awareness of the Governments of sub-Saharan African countries of them.

  2. To educate women living in remote villages and towns by providing vital medical information for them. Information is provided in the form of patient information leaflets, books, videos, DVDs and also on this website. In the future, interval magazine will be published and given to women.

  3. To run outreach workshops in communities, churches, schools, primary health centres and hospitals.
