WHAT WE DO

Menopause

Menopause is an inevitable component of ageing and encompasses the loss of ovarian reproductive function, either occurring spontaneously or secondary to other conditions. Important influential factors include the age at which menopause occurs, personal health and wellbeing, and each woman's environment and culture.

Community Activities

WHF provide direct assistance to the community people and such assistance may be in the form of medical, psychological, training or social assistance. These activities help to promote the development of civil society , balanced socio-economic development, support the development of cultural life in community, civic participation and youth initiative.

Keep Her in School

Female students face great challenges in terms of hygiene and sanitation. For girls who are menstruating, these problems compound the difficulties posed by the inability to afford sanitary towels as well as cultural taboos around menstruation. As a result, many girls miss on average four days of school every month which is over a month in a year, meaning they fall behind in class and sometimes even drop out of school altogether.

Women's Walk For Health

Women’s Walk for Health is an annual event that draws attention to the issues of women’s health in Uganda. Since it was started in 2017 ,it increased the understanding and interpretation of some of the health problems that women face in our society. These activities help to promote the development of civil society, balanced socio-economic development, development of cultural life in community, civic participation and youth initiative.

Women's Health Foundation fancy Uganda’s free of extreme inequality and injustice; a society where citizens and particularly women across all age groups claim and exercise their rights and responsibilities and can influence decisions that affect their lives.
