Eradicate Cervical Cancer Initiative
Worldwide Healing Hands brings education, training, and supplies to developing countries to fight the rising mortality rate from cervical cancer.
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted infection that leads to cervical cancer. Cervical cancer can be significantly abated through education, vaccination, medical screening, and, most importantly, early treatment. These simple steps are overwhelmingly efficacious.
Worldwide Healing Hands teaches a “single visit approach” so that women, who often travel significant distances for medical care, can be screened and treated on the same day. The same-day treatment involves the removal of the precancerous area of the cervix, which has been highly effective in reducing deaths from cervical cancer.
