With the help of such dedicated professionals, health care providers, and diverse volunteers our organization continues to focus on the prevention of cervical cancer through patient care and education. The foundation’s program includes clinical services as well as the medical training of international and local health care providers. One of the foundation’s initial goals was to build a free standing regional clinic in Cusco, Peru to meet the needs of the underserved Inca population. In May of 2008 the clinic was officially opened. Services are to be provided without charge by local physicians, nurses and foreign experts.
The aim of our collaborative effort is to promote harmony and sustainability in cooperation with the existing local medical system. Once the clinic is self sufficient and a health care plan is refined for the indigenous population, our efforts will expand to other regions with poor access to medical care. We at the INCCA Foundation are committed to spreading our positive vision of health and hope to thousands of women worldwide. However, we always need your help. Our How You Can Help page provides information on ways you can assist us in the ongoing effort to meet the needs of the patients we serve. We appreciate your interest in the INCCA Foundation and CerviCusco and hope you will consider joining us in this incredible humanitarian movement.
