Spring is in the air and we’ve been busy in the new year at Grounds for Health!
We’ve been working hard on an organizational strategy aimed at deploying extremely successful new technologies, including HPV testing and thermocoagulation treatment. These will enable Grounds for Health, in collaboration with the global health community, to reach more women for cervical cancer screening and treatment through increased efficiencies, effectiveness, and ultimately, cost savings. If successful, our work will demonstrate a more effective path to reaching more women that can be adopted by other organizations worldwide.
Over 21 years, we’ve screened more than 72,000 women, treated over 5,200 and trained 460+ community-based clinicians in seven countries. We helped pioneer the Single Visit Approach, which has become the gold standard in hard-to-reach places. But at Grounds for Health, we pride ourselves on being innovative and staying nimble.
…must scale up!
We are experts at reaching women in the developing world who have limited to no access to health care services. We are known in the global health community as an organization that possesses a unique combination of clinical credibility and local agility.
Grounds for Health is poised to use this expertise to develop new diagnostic and treatment protocols to screen and treat more women, more quickly, and more cost-effectively than ever before.
Be part of the solution!
If you’re a coffee importer or roaster/retailer, participate in the next Grounds for Health Auction on June 1st. As our biggest fundraiser, it’s a great way to improve the lives of women in the developing world.
Finally, be sure to visit us at Booth #1011 at the upcoming Global Specialty Coffee Expo in Seattle, WA from April 20-23. Our co-founder Dan Cox and other members of our Board of Directors will be attending the Expo and available to meet with interested stakeholders to share more about our new strategic direction.
