More and more women are being diagnosed with cervical cancer in Haiti. We've come across hundreds of cases ourself and more often then not, the patients are seen when their cancer has reached an advanced stage and/or when it is too late.
We've partnered with Share Hope, to educate, test and treat the women that work in the multiple factories in the industrial parks. ShareHope is a company aiming to build a community in Haiti where people have dignified work, fair wages, the chance to learn, access to quality health care and so much more. Through their factory clinic improvement program, they are able to improve the health services provided to the workers.
Women are the foundation of the Haitian household and play an important role. IHI has been working to help fight women's cancer in Haiti, specifically breast and cervical cancer as cancer is the second killer of woman in Haiti.
