Through 2017/2018, HERHealthEQ partnered with Esaote
North America and Lutech Medical to secure the donation of an ultrasound machine and a colposcope, respectively.
Savanna-la-Mar Public General Hospital, a Jamaican

With the donated equipment installed in the hospital, HERHealthEQ Founder and CEO Marissa Fayer, and Executive Director Michelle Skaer traveled to Savanna-la-Mar in May to see the firsthand impact of the equipment. During their visit, Marissa and Michelle had the opportunity to speak with hospital staff and patients to gain a sense of how the equipment might improve services at the hospital.
