PINCC - Prevention International: No Cervical Cancer

Web address:www.pincc.org
Nursing services:

PINCC is a non-profit, volunteer medical service organization whose mission is to create sustainable programs that prevent cervical cancer by educating women, training medical personnel,and equipping facilities in developing countries, utilizing proven, low cost, accessible technology methods.  PINCC trips are definitely not luxurious or vacations. The days are long, working conditions are usually poor and our living quarters are pretty basic. Water and electricity may be unreliable; food is nutritious but monotonous. We guarantee there will be frustrations and chaos and bugs and surprises and bumpy roads. Bring a spirit of adventure and a sense of humor–and several packs of tissues!  We also hope there will be moments of great satisfaction as our hosts learn new techniques for preventing cervical cancer and women consequently get the care they deserve, as your trainee hugs you goodbye, as you fall into bed knowing you overcame some challenging hurdles, and did the very best job possible.
