Advocacy

The influence of Grounds for Health goes far beyond our in-country sites. When it comes to establishing effective and sustainable programs, nearly two decades of experience working in low-resource settings has taught Grounds for Health a great deal about what works and what doesn't. Grounds for Health wants to share its lessons learned with the world, and the global health community is ready to listen. As part of our global advocacy work for the "woman at the end of the road," Grounds for Health continues to promote every woman’s right to be free from cervical cancer.
