ABOUT AWHPI

African Women’s Health Project International is a non-profit foundation that was formed to improve health care needs of women in Africa who will otherwise not have adequate healthcare. The Foundation was founded in 1999, incorporated in 2003, and the international headquarter was launched in November 2004 in Lagos, Nigeria, West Africa. The Foundation’s mission in women’s health is focused on three general issue areas:

  • Primary and general medical care for women and children.
  • Women health issues such as birth control and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases through effort in health awareness and seminars.
  • Providing medical outreach center for women to receive FREE medical care at the clinic or hospital that will be set-up.


The Foundation’s work is focused on reaching back to our motherland and helping to provide more information on health care needs of women by providing FREE medical care to women in their reproductive years.  The ultimate goal of the foundation is to set-up FREE Medical Clinics and Hospitals in impoverished areas in West Africa, notably Nigeria and Ghana.  Secondly, the foundation brings in qualified medical doctors, nurses and others in healthcare fields from the United States of America to provide volunteer services to these women. 

Based in Little Rock, Arkansas, AWHPI is a non-profit foundation dedicatedly solely to this mission.  We are working to provide access to free medical care for people in impoverished areas of West Africa, particularly Nigeria and Ghana, and spread health education and awareness.  We can do it — with the tremendous surplus of medical supplies generated here in the United States and through your support! The Foundation’s work is focused on reaching back to our motherland and helping to provide more information on health care needs of women by providing FREE medical care to women in their reproductive years. A woman’s access to quality basic health care, family planning and obstetric services can be improved through commitment to safe motherhood as a basic human right. Gender-equitable approaches to health help ensure her full participation in health service planning and delivery. Improving the health status of women remains an unmet challenge, with great disparities existing between low- and high-income countries.

As part of this effort, the Foundation collects medical equipment and supplies via donations from hospitals, private practitioners, medical manufacturers, retail stores and other private donors in the USA to be transported and used in these areas. Physicians, nurses, and other medical personnel donate their services to perform treatments at the various mission locations. With this Medical Charity Foundation, we have the ability to save lives around the World by using the tremendous surplus of medical items generated here in the United States.

Finally, to establish a foundation in Nigeria to be used as a model for other global humanitarian clinics that are first setup by volunteer staff while teaching the nationals how to maintain the community clinics in the future and provide education on preventive medicine.
