From the Director General of WAHO

Professor Stanley OKOLO

WAHO is pleased to offer you the new version of its website, which has been redesigned to meet the requirements of the quantity and diversity of the institution's activities in the field of health in Africa.

Our ambition in general and particularly in the field of communication is to share the successes and the challenges that concern us in the health sector in the ECOWAS region and to learn from others.

Committed to improving the level of health of the population in our region in a positive way, we work in close collaboration with the authorities, many partners, the private sector and of course the general public in the ECOWAS member states.

From this perspective, our website is one of the ways in which we would like to regularly provide useful information on important innovations in health, and to promote a better understanding of the mission of our institution and its activities at the regional and international levels.

I hope that this website will be supported by regular and rich contributions from ECOWAS member states, health experts within and beyond WAHO, as well as our many partners.
