2009: Our work depends upon generosity.
IPRH obtains donations of equipment and launches the Sister Aklesia Memorial Hospital/IPRH cervical cancer screening project.
2 weeks of training and four non-physician healthcare workers at Sister Aklesia Memorial Hospital participate in learning cervical cancer screening skills.
We use the “see and treat” method.
Each participant successfully completes the weeklong course, and receives certificates.
30+ patients are successfully screened.
IPRH is able to introduce the basics of Pap smear procedures and colposcopy due to collaboration with Mr. Moges, CEO Sister Aklesia Memorial Hospital.
Our work depends upon people like Moges Alemu, his family, and friends.
