CAWHI - WHO WE ARE

The Centre for Adolescents and Women’s Health Initiative (CAWHI) is a Non- Governmental Not for profit Organization (NGO) established and registered in Ghana (Registration Number: CG055332018).

CAWHI is a youth-led organization that consists of a multi-disciplinary team of health, social science and researchers who are committed to using innovative initiatives and interventions to promote and improve the sexual and reproductive health and rights of adolescents and women in Ghana.

CAWHI believes that Sexual reproductive health and rights are fundamental to gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. Although substantive progress has been made in addressing the challenges of sexual and reproductive health and rights, these advances have been inequitable across and within countries. Moreover, in many settings, people continue to have insufficient access to sexual and reproductive health services for particularly neglected, but essential, issues such as adolescent sexuality; sexual and gender-based violence; safe abortion; and child, early and forced marriage. Thus, addressing SRHR issues have become necessary.
