Who we are

West African Health Management Association (WAHMA) was formed in January 1982 as a local NGO focusing primarily on public health service and research in the West African region. WAHMA seeks to promote collaboration among government and academic institutions, as well as the private and non-profit sectors to advance the public health and health care interests of the people of Africa. WAHMA works together with its partners to address the problems of tuberculosis, malaria, HIV/AIDS, and other infectious diseases and chronic non-communicable diseases within the country. The organization also seeks to improve nutrition and maternal, neonatal and child health, while undertaking initiatives to advance public health research, education, and services to improve the lives of people in Africa.
Since 1982, as a recipient of a President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) grant, WAHMA has been taking the lead in providing oversight for the high quality HIV/AIDS care and treatment services in the West and Central African region. WAHMA is governed by a board of directors, the majority of whom are senior African experts in the healthcare and business fields.
WAHMA is committed to success through its continued collaboration with current long-time partners Pan African Pediatric Surgical Association (PAPSA), African Federation of Hospital Associations (AFHA) , University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) , and National University Teaching Hospital (CNHU-HKM), and through its established relationships within the Government, and various local and international academic institutions and public health organizations.
