From seed to scale: we help your growing enterprise soar

Mercy Owuor is the community programs director of
Lwala Community Alliance, a 2016 alum of Healthymagination Mother and Child Program, an accelerator initiative of GE Healthcare and Miller Center. Lwala tackles the multi-dimensional drivers of poor health, including unplanned pregnancies, mother-to-child transmission of HIV, poor prenatal care, unskilled deliveries, poor clinical practices, lack of emergency transport, and delayed treatment of childhood illnesses. Women in Global Health (WGH) honored Mercy at the United Nations World Health Organization’s 2017 World Health Assembly (WHA) in Geneva Switzerland alongside 12 other women at the “Heroines of Health” gala where they unveiled the moving Mother + Child Program Documentary.
