Avon Cancer Care Program in Haiti

Commitment by

Avon Products, Inc.

In 2010, the Avon Foundation for Women committed to provide access to early detection, diagnostics, and treatment of breast cancer to women in Haiti. The Avon Cancer Care in Haiti program, in partnership with Partners in Health and Zanmi Lasante, will provide expert clinicians at 12 clinics in Haiti to train community health workers to perform clinical breast screening exams, as well as provide modern equipment for diagnostics of suspicious exam findings and access to state-of-the art pathology evaluation through partners in the U.S., and offer treatments where available. Through this program, local experts will be empowered to conduct clinical breast exams and diagnostic procedures to improve the early detection of breast cancer.
