PO Box 13081 Oakland CA 94661 USA
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.
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.
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.

I came to know about PINCC through my sister who volunteers with the organization. When I learned about their valiant, unrelenting and highly successful efforts at protecting and healing women and thereby families in various developing nations around the world, I was deeply moved by their work. I was so impressed with their role in controlling and preventing cervical cancer, one of the most preventable, yet deadly diseases afflicting women that I decided to host them at our elementary school for a service project.
At this event , our parent community will recognize and acknowledge the critical role that PINCC plays in saving mothers and thereby entire families in poverty stricken regions of Asia, Africa and Latin America. As a mother myself, I salute PINCC and wish them all the very best in their journey towards achieving a healthier future for women and families around the world.
