Improving Access to High Quality Women's Cancer Services
To us, there is one clear goal: ensure women can access the cancer care they need, when they need it. Our programs serve the most vulnerable women through our proven model of service delivery.
By forming partnerships with key local healthcare providers, facilitating knowledge transfer and investing in infrastructure development, the Friends of Africa, Inc. increases access to high quality women’s cancer care service platforms.
Knowledge transfer is accomplished through a process of intense, bedside and surgical mentoring, rendered by a tight knit team of seasoned and highly skilled U.S. board-certified surgical oncologists (gynecologic and breast) and Zambian cervical cancer prevention nurse-specialists. Low-cost medical and telecommunications technology are used to enhance the educational process.
The Friends of Africa, Inc. makes wise investments in the development of local cancer care infrastructure through the procurement of screening, diagnostic and treatment technology that is durable, affordable, and appropriate for low-resource settings.
