In El Salvador, the top causes of death for women are breast and cervical cancer.
Future improvements to the David V. King Medical Center call for creating a dedicated Women’s Health Care Facility. We plan to include facilities for early detection of treatable, yet deadly forms of cancer. This, paired with our existing OB/GYN capabilities, will help foster quality health care for the women of Jucuapa and the surrounding areas.
2016 has brought a huge step towards our women’s health initiative. Our facility purchased, permitted and starting offering ultrasound to the community in March. The second half of the year we will complete the installation of the mammography machine and begin services.
