About Us


Women's World Health Initiative was born out of a passion to help women survive childbirth.

Women most at risk live in rural communities in developing countries where populations are largely uneducated. Early marriage and lack of trained birth attendants also add to high mortality rates.
We work with Senegalese physicians to develop preventative methods that help save the lives of women, and foster community growth.
WWHI, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to reducing maternal and infant mortality in vulnerable populations. Since its inception, WWHI has grown quickly in public support and is now in full operation with a staff of dedicated volunteers.
