Challenge: the problem

Cancer never comes at a convenient time. However, when it affects the sexual organs of women in developing countries, it has an even bigger impact. Women not only are the source of new life, they are also the centre of family life, the carers, educators and accountants all in one. Their death means a broken family, their children often ending up alone. In developing countries, cervical cancer is still one of the major health issues. Dutch School aims to treat and cure cervical cancer. With this goal in mind we joined heads together with all eight academic medical centers in the Netherlands, and six general hospitals. Other training hospitals also provide support when necessary. They help training gynecologists and nurses in developing countries in recognizing and treating cervical cancer. They, in turn, train their colleagues on the spot. This way the acquired knowledge steadily expands in a self-sufficient way. Please help creating space and resources. To improve women’s health and to keep them healthy.
