THE STORY:

Basic Health International wrote -

Basic Health International wants to eradicate cervical cancer globally. We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to live in a world where no woman dies from cervical cancer- an entirely preventable disease. Approximately 90% of cervical cancer burden occurs in low-resource settings, killing more than 250,000 women annually.  

BHI is on the forefront of research in novel screening and
treatment strategies and has the support of several foundations and
the National Institute of Health (NIH) to help it achieve its mission. With continued innovative research, BHI can screen, treat, prevent, and eventually cure this disease.

Basic Health International is currently working on the third phase of a 30,000 woman cervical screening program in El Salvador, is developing a low-cost and highly effective pre-cancer treatment with funding from the National Institute of Health, and is about to implement an HPV vaccination and screening program in the Caribbean. In addition, Basic Health International is continuing to travel for policy procedure and to train health officials in low-resource countries.  

We have the tools to eradicate cervical cancer, we just need better ways to get these tools to the women who really need them. Working together, we can make this dream a reality: a world where no woman dies from cervical cancer, an entirely preventable disease.
