The Operation International Kids team is comprised of medical professionals that are passionate about volunteering their time, expertise and medical care for those who are unable to access or pay for essential medical treatment. The team specializes in pediatric plastic and orthopedic surgery for children with burn scar contracture, congenital anomalies such as cleft lip and club feet as well as other trauma-related injuries.
In 2019 The Cervical Cancer Prevention and Training program was launched, with the goal to help decrease the number women dying from cervical cancer. Cervical Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death for women in many African and developing countries. This is largely do to lack of access to preventive care such as annual cervical cancer screening and HPV vaccinations. Our program provides screening and early intervention treatment for pre-cancerous lesions. Part of this program is training the local midwives and nurses on screening and treatment techniques along with donation of essential medical equipment for them to use in their future practice.
