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.

I went with PINCC in 8/08 with absolutely no idea of what i was in for. It was an extrordinary experience and one i will never forget. I went to three major African Countries-Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The people of Africa stay in my mind constantly and feel I have been changed by this experience forever more.

I have worked for a number of non-profit organizations around the globe over the last 5 years as Registered Nurse in the developing world. Working with Dr. Kay Taylor and PINCC was the most rewarding experience I have ever participated in. PINCC not only provides a valuable service to women without access to health care, they are also training Dr.s and nurses to carry on the work in their absence. This is what all non-profits should be doing but which, sadly, many do not.

I've been taking teams of volunteer doctors, nurses, and lay people to 8 countries in Central America and Africa for 3 years, to train and equip medical people who serve poor and high risk women in methods to prevent cervical cancer. It's the #1 cause of cancer death in 3rd world countries among women, and yet it's preventable! We've trained over 50 medical people this year alone. Our methods are low-cost and low-tech, so can be used in low resource settings. It's been very successful, and terrifically rewarding to save the lives of these women, and know the people we train will go on saving lives for many years to come.
