Improving women’s health conditions in Sankuru region

Women’s health has become in the latest years one of the top issues on world development’s agenda, as it is a factor of gender inequality and worldwide disparities in access to healthcare. Cervical cancer is one of the most common feminine diseases. With its 270.000 deaths every year, of which more than 85% are count up in developing countries, cervical cancer is a clear exemplification of women’s health nowadays challenges. According to World Health Organization: “the high mortality rate from cervical cancer globally (52%) could be reduced by effective screening and treatment programs”.
This is why at Worldcoo we are committed with Pobles Germans and supported by Col·legi de Metges de Barcelona to promote cervical cancer awareness and health coverage in Sankuru region (Democratic Republic of Congo).
And thanks to MeQuedoUno and its generous customers who have allowed us to raise 1300€ in less than a month for cervical cancer in Sankuru it is becoming a reality. Keep going so we can help improve women’s health conditions in this region and make a difference!
