Cancer has a high level of incidence in this region and for this reason the LUZES Foundation, counterpart of the Association of Colombians, wishes to implement different programs to modify the curative and non-preventive mentality that exists in the population, which will be based on the promotion and prevention of disease and early diagnosis, so vital for proper treatment. So far the Foundation does not have the necessary equipment for what is intended the acquisition of an endoscope and a colposcope for the early diagnosis of various types of cancer. In this way, the promotion and prevention activities that are being carried out will be complemented and the mortality rate caused by this disease will be reduced.. This project was identified by RTI International for their own research purposes and some fields do not align with The GO Map categories. End dates were estimated as one year after the start date. The Project Type "Research, Clinical" may not accurately describe this project's focus but was used for all RTI International's Global Noncommunicable Diseases Initiative projects added in June 2018. Specialties were not analyzed. All project funding was valued in 2015 USD.
