Mission, Goals, and Objectives

Our mission is to promote and nurture individuals in the area of health enrichment, health education, economic, community development, and general primary healthcare issues.

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. While the majority of people who live in poor nations of the world have been preoccupied with the struggle for basic necessities of life (food, water, clothes, and shelter), cancer has silently grown to be an enormous problem, specifically – breast and cervical cancer. Each year over 500,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer, and 80% of them reside in developing countries. The majority of these women die within a short period of time due to lack of adequate medical care. Most are young married and have children.

Thus, in Africa where mothers are relied upon to provide for and raise the children, cancers not only steal their lives, but also tragically disrupt the entire family. The core focus of AWHPI is to reach women with the medical care they so desperately need during their reproductive years and through this effort also address the other basics that affect their quality of life.

Through our Health Policy and Public Education programs and collaboration with the other healthcare professionals in the US and around the world, we provide facts, analysis, and explanation on healthcare issues to the policymaker, the media, and the public. We will work to broadly communicate information about healthcare and give people information that can help improve their health.

As part of this effort, the foundation collect 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 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.
