Who We Are

The Centre for Women’s Health and Adolescents’ Development (CWHAD) is a nongovernmental organization (NGO) founded in September 2012. The Centre was borne out of the passion to contribute to a reduction in Maternal Mortality in Nigeria, and to empower young people to make informed reproductive health choices. The Centre is duly registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) of Nigeria, as well as with other relevant authorities in Rivers state.
