Go Doc Go, back in Senegal
Oct 26, 2016

For the second time this year, Dr. Maggie Carpenter and her team from Go Doc Go came to Senegal to conduct trainings on cervical cancer screening and lesion removal. The sessions allow healthcare providers in Senegal to learn new techniques and to comfortably incorporate them into their own practices. Go Doc Go donates all of the necessary equipment to the providers, and conducts all of the screenings for free. It is a fantastic program, and we were again thrilled to be working with Go Doc Go to improve women’s health in Senegal.

On October 10 and 11 in Dakar, Dr. Carpenter was joined by Dr. Juliette Faye, and together they trained four doctors and fifteen midwives, and screened over 100 women. The team next went to the regional hospital of Kolda, where they trained thirty healthcare providers — doctors, nurses and midwives — and screened over 175 women.

We are so grateful to Dr. Carpenter and her team, and we look forward to future collaborations.
