CAPED, a non-profit in India, and dedicated community health workers are fighting cervical cancer taboos to bring life-saving screening and awareness to India’s remote villages, where 70,000 die yearly from this preventable disease.
“The HPV (human papillomavirus) Testing & Treatment Mobile Clinic is the first of its kind to bring the most advanced cervical cancer prevention technology out of the healthcare facility and directly into the community.”
We have officially reached the landmark of 200,000 women screened in our efforts to bring woman-centered, high quality health care to some of the most rural and underserved communities around the world.
More than 350,000 women die from this almost completely preventable cancer each year, the leading cause of cancer death among women in the developing world. Dr. Gordon founded CureCervicalCancer to address this unmet need.
