Sanford World Clinic partners with communities across the globe to promote shared learning and support sustainable health care solutions.
Launched in 2007, this initiative today works through 11 partnerships in nine countries. Our longest-held international partnership is in Ghana, Africa, where we most urgently need your support today.
Sanford World Clinic in Ghana
Since 2012, World Clinic has worked in partnership with the Ministry of Health and local stakeholders across Ghana to build a sustainable primary health care infrastructure.
Today, more than 100 physicians and staff at World Clinic-operated clinics care for thousands of patients every year. But through this work, we see a preventable tragedy unfolding that we can’t combat alone: too many young lives lost each day to cervical cancer.
- 4 owned and operated hub clinics
- 105 physicians and staff
- 150,000 patient visits annually (1.5 million visits since 2012)
- Electronic medical record system in place
- Relationships with the Universities of Ghana and Cape Coast to expand biomedical research opportunities in Ghana
- Services: acute primary care, preventative care (cervical cancer screening, breast exams, family planning), maternity, chronic disease management, laboratory and retail pharmacy
A PREVENTABLE TRAGEDY
Across sub-Saharan Africa today, women’s lives are under threat from cervical cancer. Despite being highly preventable, it is the single most fatal cancer among young African women.
Most cervical cancers are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection for which there is an effective vaccine. However, vaccine access and awareness are extremely limited for much of the continent.
Hope begins here
By improving access to the HPV vaccine, along with incentives for young people to receive it, we can save lives, futures and families.
To that end, we’ve teamed up with Samaritan’s Feet—a global humanitarian aid organization that provides anti-microbial shoes to people in need—to offer free shoes to kids ages 9 to 14, along with the HPV vaccine, at community- and school-based shoe distribution events across the country.
This strategy works. But, we need partners like you on the front lines with us. Your sponsorship will fund vaccines for children today to help save tomorrow’s mothers, caregivers, educators, entrepreneurs and community leaders who will shape Africa’s future.
Sponsor a child
100% of your gift today can help fully vaccinate a child and change their future, for good.
