Join This Initiative

There is an urgent need on the island for medical intervention, in particular, medical equipment and supplies.  We invite our fellow Dominicans all around the world to join us in acquiring life saving medical devices that will enable healthcare providers to accurately diagnose ailments and deliver quality treatment to improve overall health of their patients.

Mobile Mammogram

Oncology Project  – Mammogram Unit 

The purpose of this project is to bring breast cancer screening into the villages of Dominica to the people – meeting them where they are. In a study which was reported in the June 2, 2018 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association Oncology, Dominica was ranked 3rd in cancer deaths in the world, behind Mongolia and Zimbabwe. World-wide, among women, breast cancer is the commonest cancer and most common cause of death. While the rate is decreasing in ‘developed nations’, the rate is increasing in developing countries. Among the Caribbean islands, Dominica has emerged as having the highest rate of breast cancer.

Given these statistics, we are looking at an innovative way to enhance breast cancer screening by bringing care to underserved communities with limited access to the main hospitals. Currently, there is limited capacity for screening and diagnosis of breast cancer on the island. The mobile unit will be a coach, fitted with a mammogram machine and breast ultrasound, able to be driven to health clinics in villages. Patients can come to the unit to get screening close to home. We are working with Assured Imaging (, a reputable company in the US, building mobile medical units which are being successfully used for breast cancer screening in rural America.
