Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Brazil

Location: RibeirÃo Preto

Total Budget: $30,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Prostate Cancer is the second most common malignancy in men, behind only of non-melanoma skin cancer. Its incidence rate in Brazil is around 68 cases per 100.000 men, but in our region (southeast)this incidence is one of the largest of our country, comprising about 88 new cases per 100.000 men, per year. Therefore, prevention, early diagnosis and rapid treatment initiation represent a very important strategy for the control of the disease and healing. Bladder cancer has a lower incidence in the population, but our region southeast ha one the largest incidence of Brazil.

Acquisition of equipment and accessories for rigid cystoscopy to perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in urology and uro-oncology will benefit a large number of patients of the Oncology and Urology Services of the Hospital of Sociedade Portuguesa de Ribeirão Preto, through early diagnosis and prompt and apropriate treatment of various cancers.

The Oncology Department is a center of high complexity, seeing patients for prevention and early diagnosis and cancer treatent.

The need to acquisition this equipment is immediate.

The Club members are involved attending the hospital specialits to collect datas of number of people and cities which will be attend and quotation of prices, and the data will be collected for one year after purchase. The training of the hospital specialists that will operate the machine, expenses for preventive and corrective maintenace will be taken over by the Hospital, which makes this project sustainable.
