The Women’s Health and Action Research Centre (WHARC) is a registered non-profit organization, committed to the promotion of women’s reproductive health in sub-Saharan Africa. Founded in 1995, the centre’s primary mission is to conduct multidisciplinary and collaborative research, advocacy and training on issues relating to the reproductive health of women. The centre pursues its work principally through multidisciplinary groups of national and international medical and social science researchers and advocates in reproductive health.
WHARC receives core funding and support from the Ford Foundation and technical cooperation and mentorship from International Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Studies in Family Planning. Principal funding for the journal comes from the Consortium on Unsafe Abortion in Africa. The goal of the centre is to improve the knowledge of women’s reproductive health in Nigeria and other parts of Africa through collaborative research, advocacy, workshops and seminars and through its series of publications – the African journal of Reproductive Health, the Women’s Health Forum and occasional working papers.
