Our Approach

By forming partnerships with key local healthcare providers, investing in human resource development and procuring equipment and supplies, the Friends of Africa, Inc. builds women’s cancer care service platforms.

Zambia

Working closely with the Zambian Ministry of Health and other local, national and international partners, we have played a central role in the development of the Cervical Cancer Prevention Program in Zambia. Over 500,000 women have now been screened for cervical cancer, breast cancer early detection and surgical treatment opportunities have been exponentially increased, and a gynecologic oncology fellowship training program established at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka.

Democratic Republic of Congo

Through a public-private partnership with the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation, the Friends of Africa, Inc. has established the following service platforms at the Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital in Kinshasa, DRC: Cervical and Breast Cancer Early Detection Clinics; Cervical and Breast Cancer Surgical Units.

Malawi

Using a nontraditional approach to training, we significantly shortened the time required to teach an important gynecologic oncology surgical procedure in a very low resource African setting, resulting in immediate capacity building. As a result, life-saving surgical care for women with early stage cervical cancer is now available for the first time, as a routine clinical service, in Central/Northern, Malawi, at Kamuzu Central Hospital

Improving Women's Access to High Quality Cancer Services

To us, we have one clear goal: ensure woman  can get timely access to the quality cancer care they need when they need it. Our programs serve the most at risk women through our proven model of services.
