Wavuvi Concern was co-founded in 2014 by members of the Lake Victoria Consortium for Health Research (LVCHR), an interdisciplinary group of scientists, researchers and clinicians committed to improving the health of people living in Lake Victoria fishing communities.
Wavuvi Concern is a platform for drawing public attention to the challenges faced by this marginalized population which has some of the highest rates of HIV in the world. We aim to produce and share knowledge that will shift public understanding and practices toward alleviating poverty and fostering equity, especially in access to health care, social services, education, food security, clean water and sanitation.
This website also serves as an open source and clearinghouse for information on Lake Victoria fishing communities. We welcome all stakeholders to provide relevant information and tools which can be shared on this site.
