Our story-telling cloth for HPV and cervical cancer education is everywhere! From the beaches of RI to the streets of Bamako, everyone is showing off their GAIA style!
Along with the distribution of fabric at the 5 participating health clinics in Bamako, we have been offering free cervical cancer screening for all women since April 2015. Screening rates have increase up to 6 fold at some of the clinics thanks to the amazing efforts of our story-telling-cloth-wearing peer educators, fantastic radio programming, and conscientious team of doctors and midwives. When a woman tests positive for precancerous lesions, GAIA is covering the cost of her biopsy and she will receive free treatment with Pr. Teguété, top specialist on cervical cancer.
Check out the great variety of story-telling cloth styles, and consider supporting GAIA to help us continue this program!
