WE PREVENT CERVICAL CANCER
IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
Cervical Cancer: A Global Epidemic
We identify the highest need communities around the globe, provide the necessary equipment for screening and treatment, and establish permanent cervical cancer prevention clinics – both mobile and facility-based.
We conduct specialized training for local healthcare professionals and community health volunteers, so that they can continue to provide life-saving services to the women in their communities.
We aim to achieve sustainability by building local capacity and optimizing existing resources. We partner with national/local governments and organizations to strengthen healthcare systems and improve access to care.
