Challenge

According to the World Health Organization, cervical cancer is the fourth most frequent cancer in women worldwide, and about 90% of cervical cancer diagnoses occur in low- and middle-income countries. When cervical cancer is not detected early, the survival rate is 66%. This can drop as low as 40% in parts of sub-Saharan Africa. If cervical cancer is detected early, the survival rate is 92%.

Solution

By donating 100 Lutech LT-300 colposcopes to local community-based healthcare clinics within 10 countries (including Costa Rica, Egypt, Fiji, Ghana, Lebanon, Mexico, Romania, South Africa, Zambia, and more), HERhealthEQ can deliver early screening access to 5,000 women per colposcope per year, increasing their likelihood of survival.

Long-Term Impact

HERhealthEQ's 10-for-10 Project will screen 500,000 women for cervical cancer per year.
