Women's Health

CWHA seeks to assist in the reduction of infant mortality and improve maternal and infant health outcomes and health disparities through community-based activities in neighborhoods disproportionately affected by poor birth, infant and health outcomes.


For decades, CWHA has been involved in the fight to stop the HIV/AIDS epidemic. During the fiscal year 2021-2022, we educated roughly 10,000 residents on HIV prevention. Our HIV Prevention Team provides culturally relevant education on a wide range of topics relating to the most important health challenges in our communities.
