WAAFplus’ areas of focus are education, advocacy, community empowerment and development, treatment, care & support as well as research. With an onsite clinic, WAAF presents a unique one-stop service, connecting various communities to formal healthcare service delivery facilities.
WAAF is well known for its contribution over the years to Ghana’s healthcare by the Ghana Health Service, NACP and other major stakeholders in health care delivery. We act as a first point of contact for health care for other CBO’s, FBO’s, health facilities and are thus well networked with other formal health facilities in the country. Referrals, follow-ups and monitoring are also facilitated through our involvement in healthcare down to the grassroots level.
WAAF plays a leading role in community mobilization for improved access to heath services for under-served and vulnerable populations, and has extensive experience in developing and delivering community-based education and care programs. Coming into its 14th year, WAAF has stepped up to WAAF plus and will continue its commitment to leadership in servicing Ghana, particular its pregnant women, MSMs, sex workers, PLHIVs and their partners
WAAF plus’ mission is to help battle the spread of HIV/AIDS, TB as well as other communicable and non communicable diseases and mitigate their effects on communities by providing care and support centers and developing and implementing pragmatic intervention programs.
WAAF plus ‘ vision is to set up comprehensive health care centers in all regions of Ghana and West African sub-regions to provide quality health care and to reach out to identified target groups in collaboration with local and international organizations.
