Healthy Liver Initiative
Creating a society where the prevalence of Infectious hepatitis is at the barest minimum, a place where individuals are constantly interested in habits that will promote their liver health and prevent liver diseases.
Healthy Liver Initiative (HLI) was inspired by the Center for Social Awareness, Advocacy and Ethics Incorporated (CSAAE), a youth focused organization founded by Godswill Agbagwa, a Catholic priest and university professor. HLI is a social enterprise initiated in response to the high prevalence of hepatitis B and other infectious liver diseases specifically in Plateau State and Nigeria at large. The main purpose of HLI is to promote healthy liver as well as increase awareness and prevent liver diseases among the individuals in communities susceptible to high incidence of preventable liver diseases including hepatitis, cirrhosis, and carcinomas.
The CEO of HLI, Yawe Peter joined CSAAE’s Emerging African Leaders Program in 2017 to enable him to achieve his dream of becoming Nigeria’s health minister someday. ELP prepares African youths for influential leadership positions critical to development especially political, media, judicial, business and religious leadership. The aim is to raise a new generation of leaders imbued with the morals and skill set necessary to navigate Africa out of poverty and underdevelopment. As part of ELP training, he initiated HLI in February 2018 as a community project. HLI was scaled up as a social enterprise by the Centre in 2019.
