WWAV envisions a world in which there is no war against women and women’s bodies, in which women have spaces to come together to tell their stories, in which women empower themselves to make decisions about their own bodies and lives, and in which women have the support they need to realize their hopes and dreams.

Through relentless advocacy, health education, supportive services, or community-based participatory research, we stand alongside marginalized women, their families, and their communities, and walk with them to address the social conditions that hinder their health and well-being.

Our Core Work includes:

  • Women’s Health Education, Promotion & Advocacy
  • Harm Reduction, Overdose Prevention & Drug Policy Reform
  • HIV/AIDS & STI Prevention & Education
  • Gender-Based Violence Prevention
  • Sex Worker Advocacy
  • LGBTQ Advocacy
  • Civic Engagement
