Empowering & Training 10,000 African Women Champs!

by LiveWell Initiative LWI


Hepatitis is a Silent Killer. Over 90% of people living with Viral Hepatitis in Africa are not aware of the scourge; especially the women and children who are the most vulnerable because of the routes of transmission - sexual, mother to child and child to child are most common in Africa. We are planning to reverse the trend by halting new infections and reversing the trend in our goal towards elmination of Viral Hepatitis by 2030 through the women of Africa by training 10,000 women as Champions

total goal


Women and Children are the most affected by viral hepatitis in Africa, so we started the Women in Hepatitis Africa WIHA, to empower the women, give them a voice, and assist women get ahead of the problem especially through Awareness, Sensitization and elimination agenda in line with WHO, PMTCT prevention of mother to child transmission, child to child and sexual transmission. Women across all sociodemographic disparities are beneficiaries. We Trained the first 100 women 3 months ago, FREE.


The project will empower, Screen, and Vaccinate Women and Children but also for their husbands. It will save Womens lives! So far, without any grant, we have screened over 10,000 women since our inception in April 2017 including screening at the Presidency and Vice Presidency, Top women, for impact and to secure stakeholder buy-in for Policy Implementation and Policy Drive. We received a Presidential Commendation in Abuja, for the work done so far. Now, we need the finance to Scale Up!

Long-Term Impact

Long term effects are mainly the impact among women, especially pregnant women and nursing mothers as well as widows...we are working with the most vulnerable women. Our goal is to reach 10,000 women by 2020 with the TOT Training, such women will become WIHA Women Champions WWCs all over Africa. The impact will result in 1 million women having heard about Hepatitis in Africa by 2020; that will lead to eradication as the million would have impacted at least 10 million by 2030.
