Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Brazil

Location: Amazonas

Total Budget: $31,105

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

The Amazon state has the highest place on the number of death by female uterine cervix cancer in Brasil and one of the highest in the world. Treatment is relatively simple and has a high level of cure if identified and treated in the begining of the disease. The main incidence of the illness is in the country side area of Amazonas state. The women doesn't have the practice to go the doctor regularly and the government does not have enough doctors to serve all the cities of the state. This project is to buy a medical equipment kit that will allow doctors teams to go the cities in the country side of the state and identify and treat this disease. The Centro de Oncologia do Amazonas Foundation already has the expertise to run this treatment and already has the doctors teams to do it. Our project will give equipment support to these team to reduce the number of death by this disease.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
