EQuipment for EQuity

HERHealthEQ is driving health equity by providing medical devices and equipment to developing countries for women's health issues.

HERHealthEQ's vision is to reduce female mortality in developing nations by providing access to medical device EQuipment, creating an EQuitable standard of care. Women are the cornerstone of the family unit. When a woman becomes ill and does not receive the care she needs, the entire family unit is at greater risk of remaining in a cycle of poverty.

We focus on providing equipment involved in the treatment of the top non-communicable diseases (NCDs) that affect the developing world which include cancers affecting women, maternal health, diabetes, and heart disease.

Women assisted to date

HERHealthEQ's efforts span multiple countries and cover a variety of health conditions. Since our founding in 2016, we have impacted the lives of more than 107,000 women and counting. HERHealthEQ’s projects in Savana-La-Mar and Tanzania are greatly impacting the lives of local women, increasing access to cervical cancer screening via a colposcope and treatment via Cryotherapy, as well as childbirth screening using an Ultrasound.

worth of wasted medical equipment (U.S.)

Often times when new equipment models are introduced, or a hospital changes vendors, or devices reach their expiration dates, they are unnecessarily discarded. In reality, they can easily be repurposed for use at other healthcare facilities around the world. HERHealthEQ secures donations of these devices and assists in bringing these perfectly good systems to places that would otherwise not have access.

Women die every year 

Pregnancy or childbirth-related medical issues account for the death of more than 289,000 women every year. The majority of these could have been prevented with sufficient access to skilled routine and emergency care. If women in low-to-middle income countries had equitable access to care, the number of preventable deaths would drastically decrease. Low-income countries have 10 times fewer physicians than high-income countries.
