Graduation Day: 407 Women Screened in Kisumu

Graduation Day: 407 Women Screened in Kisumu

Today we completed our “See & Treat” training. Together with the newest Global Trainees and our facilitators (some who have been previous Global Trainees themselves) we screened 407 women. We referred 10 patients who were suspicious for cancer and treated 9 with cryotherapy.

This “See & Treat” training program will launch the beginning of CCC’s partnership with KMET and Kisumu County. Dr. Dickens, Kisumu County Director of Health,  Monica Owuor, Kisumu County Focal Person for Cervical Cancer, and Monica Oguttu, KMET Executive Director,  joined the CCC team and Global Trainees to celebrate our hard work, achievements, and learning.

We certified 21 Global Trainees who represent 7 “See & Treat” Clinic sites in Kisumu County and 1 Mobile Clinic
