Women's Wellness Initiative
Join our efforts to save lives through free cervical cancer screenings at Namwianga Mission.
Why? Every woman Screened
Women in Zambia do not have access to preventative screening. A woman is limited by distance and funds. This means a woman will not get screened unless she has symptoms, and often not even then. By then, it is too late.
In 2015, two of our nurses were trained to do cervical cancer screenings. Until NZHC became certified to offer these screenings, for most of the women in the area, there was no hope of being screened. The next step is to finish our surgical center.
The surgical center will allow us to treat cervical cancer in addition to conducting screening, and will allow us to serve women through hysterectomies, and c-sections which allows us to save more lives.
The ability to provide free screening means that not only are we able to prevent deaths by catching precancerous cells before they have the chance to develop into cancer, but every woman screened receives spiritual counseling and teaching that changes the social perceptions about cancer.
