Dr. Salome Waweru, Gynecologist, Kiambu District Hospital, Kenya August 2012
"This week of initial training with PINCC has been an extraordinary experience for all of us. We have learned so much and are so excited to continue. We had started some screening here in Kiambu but now we are really ready to move ahead. I promise that we will continue this work and we look forward to you returning in six months to see what we have done!"
Mary Keiyo, Nurse Midwife, Kitale, Kenya, August 2012
"We are so grateful for all the training and support we have received from PINCC. We continue the screening in rural areas, taking our equipment on the bus and working wherever we can find space to reach women who would otherwise not have access to this care. May God bless you all."
