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.

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.
