The WISH Revolution: Women-Inspired Strategies for Healthcare
As the New Year commences, we are reminded of the global crisis that is cervical cancer. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that there are over half a million new cases each year. January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. We take this time to remember and carry out our mission: to make cancer diagnosis, prevention, and treatment more accessible and effective for women worldwide. The WISH Revolution is part of this mission; we believe women can fight to end the scourge that is cervical cancer. Together, we are the solution.
