Improving Breast Cancer Care in Matabeleland South, Zimbabwe
Closing date: 08 February 2024
Matabeleland South Province is one of the most deprived areas in Zimbabwe. A breast cancer patient's pathway is painfully slow, resulting in many being diagnosed at a late stage, when their cancer can no longer be cured.
The ABS in the UK is working with partners in health, education and government in Zimbabwe to improve breast cancer care in Matabeleland South. We aim to establish 2 rural clinics, in Gwanda and Beitbridge, with the ability to diagnose cancer. This involves equipping clinics and training staff in breast diagnosis, including the use of portable ultrasound devices where the image can be seen on a mobile phone or tablet.
The ABS is fundraising to support its Matabeleland South Project. The funds raised will, amongst other things, be put towards training of staff in Matabeleland South, equipping clinics to undertake breast diagnosis, providing a borehole at one of the clinics and providing patients with information about breast cancer.
We thank you for your support.
