Basic Health International
Basic Health International exists to eliminate cervical cancer on a global level through cutting edge research for the prevention and treatment of cervical cancer in low resource settings. Through research and field-work in Latin American countries, BHI is creating a scalable blueprint of sustainable strategies that can be applied in communities throughout the world to prevent, identify, and treat cervical cancer. Aligned with the World Health Organization’s mission to eliminate cervical cancer globally by 2030, BHI’s team of experts focuses on research, community education, outreach, and policy.
Our research and implementation transcends borders and has compelled us to find solutions to the recent public health emergency and to address the needs of our most vulnerable communities at home and abroad. The current COVID-19 pandemic provides an opportunity to build laboratory infrastructure for SARS-CoV-2 testing which can also be used for other types of testing including HPV. This infrastructure is critical to cervical cancer elimination.
