Providing access and creating awareness.
CureCervicalCancer and HERHealthEQ will deliver 3 thermocoagulation devices to the Hue province of rural Vietnam. These devices will assist in the prevention and treatment of early stage cervical cancer.
HERhealthEQ partnered with Tanzanian company SkyConnect who developed the cervical cancer screening platform called SEVIA, which leverages mobile health for real-time cervical cancer screening.
HERHealthEQ is committed to driving health equity by providing medical devices and equipment to developing countries, focused on women's health issues.
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.
Dedicated to change.
HERHealthEQ is delighted to share its first annual report.
2018 presented an incredible year of growth for HERHealthEQ, both financially and in our strategic partnerships. In addition to the IRS approval of our 501c3 status, we kicked off two projects in Jamaica and Tanzania. The year ahead projects immense promise as our team continues to expand and our impact as an organization reaches farther than ever before.
