The See & Treat Method

About The Program

Cervical cancer represents a significant threat to public health worldwide. In Haiti, where a lack of health infrastructure combines with widespread deprivation, the disease is a leading cause of mortality. Cervical cancer, however, is preventable, and capracare is establishing efforts to end it in Haiti.

The Benefits of The Program Are:

  1. It’s cost effective, quick, efficient, and accurate
  2. Screenings are performed by our well-trained Haitian nurses and doctors
  3. It takes only one trip to the clinic to be tested and treated

How We Do It

Since May 2017, we’ve planned and delivered a cervical cancer screening program for the local population of an estimated 20,000 residents of Fonfrède. capracare uses a clinic based see and treat screening method in conjunction with a community education program.

The program was implemented with the support of a specialist team of Rotarians from the Prospect Goshen Rotary Club based in the United States and funded initially funded through Rotary International grants.

Preparatory work for delivering cervical cancer screening commenced from the inception of the project in 2015 up to the initiation of screening in 2017. 

The Future

Through our continued partnership with the Prospect Goshen Rotary Club, we’re in the process of developing another grant to expand even further into the south of Haiti and establish new sites for See & Treat services.
