|Preventing Women's Cancer in Peru. Compassion in Care. Excellence in Medicine|
|CerviCusco is a Peruvian registered non government organization (NGO) created to address the exceedingly high rate of cervical cancer in rural Peru. All services are provided free of charge to impoverished, disenfranchised and indigenous women living in the remote Andes Mountains of Peru. Patients are seen in a 2,500 sq ft clinical center in Cusco and also in rural mountain locations. The clinic is staffed by Peruvian physicians, nurses, laboratorians and ancillary staff and is open 6 days/week. In just 6 years, the CerviCusco team has examined more than 50,000 women at CerviCusco and has performed thousands of screening and diagnostic examinations and hundreds of surgical procedures. CerviCusco is the first health care facility in Peru to offer the quadrivalent HPV vaccine (Gardasil, MSD), liquid-based Pap tests (SurePath, Becton Dickinson), animated patient education videos in Quechua, and a telepathology center that conducts weekly consultations with experts at Harvard University. CerviCusco also developed the only cytology screener school in Peru designed to teach Peruvians how to accurately read modern Pap tests. In addition, based on internationally renowned colposcopy diagnostic services, CerviCusco has become a Center of Excellence for cervical cancer prevention in Peru.||
