IHI will treat 300 women with breast cancer in 2018. We have completed treated 30 women with cervical cancer using chemotherapy and surgery, a novel approach in places that don't have radiation therapy. We will have screened 5000 women for breast and cervical cancer in 2018.
The awareness program is growing and reaching out to the community in different ways. We continue to have breast cancer survivors spread the message in their churches and schools, and now at the market places and bus stops. In addition, we educated 1500 people in two days in two factories in Port au Prince (see photo). Awareness is key to finding cancers early, which will help more women survive the deadly disease.
In 2019, we will open a new chemotherapy program in Cap Haitien, Haiti's second largest city. Making treatment more available is the next battle we face. Thanks for being a part of it!
