Saving Women’s Lives

Cervical cancer is one of the world’s deadliest – but most easily preventable – forms of cancer, responsible for more than 275,000 deaths annually, 90% of which occur in developing countries.
Help us save women’s lives.

Global Impact

From Nicaragua to Peru to Ethiopia, our cervical cancer prevention programs focus on empowering communities to bring care to the women who need it most.

Grounds for Health

Since 1996, Grounds for Health has worked in Latin America and Africa to address one of the most significant disparities in women’s health globally.

Cervical cancer is a nearly 100% treatable disease, and yet in the next 15 years it is expected to kill six million women – 90% of whom will live in developing countries.

We specialize in working in communities that represent the base of global supply chains such as coffee, tea, cut flowers and cocoa. 

Our Mission

Grounds for Health has screened 64,040 and treated 4,402 women for cervical cancer.

Global Challenge

In developing countries, cervical cancer kills more women than any other cancer. Over 80% of women newly diagnosed with cervical cancer live in these countries. Most have never been screened; many are diagnosed too late for recovery.


Problem with a Solution

Cervical cancer is one of the easiest cancers to detect, treat, and cure when caught early. If every woman were screened just once in her lifetime, global cervical cancer rates would drop by 30%; screened twice, rates drop by 60%.


Women Deserve More

Women in developing nations are no more susceptible to the disease than their sisters in the first world. They simply do not have access to screening and treatment.

It’s time we stand up and do something.

MONIN Flavor Benefits
Grounds for Health

We are proud to announce that longtime Leadership Circle supporter MONIN has pledged to increase awareness and generate support for our work through the sale of its Roasted Hazelnut Syrup. Proceeds from this popular and delicious flavoring will be donated to Grounds for Health to help deliver important health care services to women living in coffee-growing communities.

If you are a coffee roaster or retailer, ask your distributor about this new flavoring … and if you’re a coffee lover, try some Roasted Hazelnut in your next latte and sip easy knowing you are supporting our work!
