Preventing Cervical Cancer in the Coffeelands

In the next 15 years the livelihoods of six million women will be affected by cervical cancer.  It is estimated that 90% of those cases will be in low- and middle-income countries, despite the fact that cervical cancer is nearly 100% preventable.  This is one of the great inequities in healthcare. 
Grounds for Health is working to change things. We are experts at training local partners to provide cervical cancer screening and treatment to women in underserved areas of Ethiopia and Kenya. Our work has been lauded by leaders in both global health and the coffee industry, and we are commited to exploring new technologies and delivery models to serve women with efficiency and quality.

Our programs in the coffee regions of Latin American and East Africa have been largely supported by the coffee industry, a testament to the fact that this industry fundamentally cares about its people at every step of the supply chain. Our vision is of a world in which all women are protected from the threat of cervical cancer by timely and high-quality preventive care. Please join us.
