Project Report | Mar 26, 2019
Expanding to new countries and creating new tools

By Danna Remen | Project Leader

This month, the Global Oncology (GO) Cancer Education Materials (CEM) team posted a second language for Zimbabwean patients and clinicians in Harare, affiliated with the Cancerserve Foundation. We now offer booklets in Ndebele and Shona for this community and look forward to deepening our engagement in Zimbabwe during the course of this year.

Also underway are translations to Arabic for a pediatric unit in Baghdad as well as Hindi for the many downloaders requesting an Indian version of our tool.

Our ongoing work with the Clinton Health Access Initiative in Nigeria is producing an adaptation of the CEM booklet for the local context and four translations to the country’s major languages of Hausa, Igbo, Yoruba, and Pidgin English. This collaboration has led to the launch of GO’s newest education initiative: a comic book designed for low- and middle-income countries, teaching people of all ages about cervical cancer and the importance of getting the HPV vaccine. Read more about this project on GlobalGiving.

And visit our cancer patient education tool in over a dozen languages here.

Your financial and volunteer support of these works are crucial and helping to make cancer education and care more equitable on a global scale. Thank you for your kind support, and please contact us if you’d like to learn more.
