If the COVID-19 Pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we’re all connected. That global health is your health.
We can all take action to provide a safer healthier world for ourselves and our neighbors.
Basic Health International works in high-risk communities around the world, leading the way in research, prevention, education, and treatment of cervical cancer.
We’re bringing our passion for basic health back to our home base, here in Pittsburgh, PA. In honor of HPV Awareness Day, we’re launching a campaign to fund Free HPV Vaccine Clinics with 2 incredible partner groups who work tirelessly to support and uplift their communities and provide individuals with opportunities for more balanced lives: Allies for Health + Wellbeing and For Good.
Please join us in our first-ever vaccination funding campaign all month long. Your contribution will fund free vaccination clinics for the people that Allies for Health + Wellbeing and For Good in the late Spring and Summer. With your support, we plan to add more vaccinations and more partners in Pittsburgh and beyond in the coming years in the fight against HPV and cervical cancer.
