Volunteering Oportunities

Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Cancer, Health, Reproductive Health Care, Reproductive Rights, Specifically Named Diseases

Mission: PINCC takes volunteer medical teams to train doctors and nurses in underserved countries, for the prevention of cervical cancer, the #1 cancer killer of women in the 3rd world. We then donate the equipment to make the site sustainable.

Results: PINCC has trained and certified 18 centers in 8 countries and we are working towards certifying 12 more centers in 2011. Over the past six years PINCCs volunteer doctors have screened over 10,000 women during our training campaigns, and trained over 300 doctors and nurses. Each of the sites certified by PINCC can screen and serve between 1,000 – 3,000 women yearly.

Target demographics: The women that reside in these countries live in poor, rural, and/or remote communities. The majority of families try to eak out a living on a meager $3 a day or less, and cannot afford the luxury or expense a trip to a private doctor’s office would bring.

Geographic areas served: Central America, Africa, India

Went on humanitarian mission to East Africa. It turned my head around. East Africa is a different world from the one I know. We worked in hospitals in Uganda and Kenya. They in no wise resemble hospitals with which I am familiar. As the data input guy I was not directly involved in serving patients or instructing resident staff. I came away with a changed world view. I thank PINCC for this. PINCC is about changing the world by saving lives. PINCC also forever changes those who participate in its mission.

Am the Deputy medical superitendant of Kisoro Hospital in Uganda. Am also in charge of the community health department as well as the country representative for Doctors for Global health(DGH) in Uganda.PINCC was introduced to us by students from Albert Einstein College of Medicine(AECOM)who had been working with us in trying to address the challenges of womens heath, particularly cervical cancer screening. The PINCC team agreed to visit Kisoro during one of their trips to East Africa. They have since visited us every 6 months since August 2007. During these visits, they have trained a team of 12 health workers at this hospital in VIA, Cryotherapy and LEEP.At the same time have supported the team in carrying out campaigns of screening. THe team has now become fully self sufficient and in 2008 has screened over 1500 women.Kisoro is only the 5th site in the entire country that is now doing screening, and in 2008 was the most active in the entire country. PINCC also helped mobilise resources and donated to us a cryotherapy and LEEP machines. We have truly benefited from the services that PINCC offers. Dr. Baganizi Michael(miknizi@yahoo.com)
