Why You Should Donate
The ASPIRE program is working to bridge the gap between research and sustainable program implementation. In order for ASPIRE to realize the goal of reducing the global burden of cervical cancer, we need the support of generous donors like you. All Canadian donations are eligible for an official receipt for tax purposes.
Funding from donations go directly toward ASPIRE’s program delivery and capacity building in Uganda for ongoing cervical cancer screening. The ASPIRE approach aims to shift the ownership to the local communities where it is implemented, so it is essential to establish the necessary infrastructure as well as human and material resources for service delivery. Here’s how your donations will be used:
PROGRAM SPECIFIC SUPPORT: Building the foundations for self collection based cervical cancer screening in Uganda and sub-Saharan Africa
|Training local outreach workers||Training local physicians to conduct colposcopy and biopsy||Outfitting a colposcopy clinical suite at Kisenyi Health Centre||Developing educational modules for nurses and midwives||Training and building lab capacity for HPV testing|
SUPPORT FOR CERVICAL CANCER SCREENING: Providing funds to conduct cervical cancer screening with HPV for women
There are a variety of costs that are involved in implementing ASPIRE’s cervical cancer screening model in Uganda. Some of these costs include recruiting local outreach workers, salaries for local physicians and nurses, laboratory testing and processing fees, testing for other reproductive tract infections, diagnostics and treatment. The approximate cost of the ASPIRE model for cervical cancer screening in Uganda is:
|Screening 50 women||Screening 100 women||Screening 500 women||Screening 1,000 women|
