Prevention International: No Cervical Cancer (PINCC)
May 28, 2010
Working with PINCC, first in Africa, and now twice a year in India is the most amazing and fulfilling work I have ever done! So many women in the slum & village areas of developing countries develop cervical cancer, which is totally preventable and is seldom seen in developed areas where Pap smears are used. The single visit "see & treat" screening process is safe, easy to teach to local doctors, and very effective at preventing the onset of cervical cancer.
Perhaps the most wonderful aspect is that we are building the capacity of local health workers to do the screening on a regular basis, and also preparing them to train other health workers, to spread the availability of this remarkable process.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
As Administrator for PINCC India and also as a Board member, I have access to the clinical success results from the screening and treatment process.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Seeing the screening and training process work so effectively
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Really surprised at how fulfilling the work is
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Eradicate most of the cervical cancer in the world and asve many thousands of lives each year
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every week
