The African Women's Cancer Awareness Association (AWCAA) is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization. AWCAA was established in 2004 by a coalition of African immigrant women health professionals in order to address disparities in awareness, prevention and access to healthcare for African immigrant communities that face cancer and other life threatening illnesses. The group has grown to encompass healthcare professionals, entrepreneurs and concerned individuals dedicated to eliminating these disparities commencing from the Washington metropolitan area and beyond.
WCAA works to develop substantial partnerships that eliminate disparities in awareness, prevention and treatment of cancer and other life-threatening illness for African immigrant communities; especially the medically underserved. We will accomplish our goals through education, empowerment and developing self-sufficiency. If you or your organization is interested in partnering with AWCAA please feel free to contact us at:
