Rankin McKenzie Partner, Larry Woolhiser is so pleased to be working with Calla Health, a health technology company centered on sustainably improving women’s access to cancer prevention. They are creating innovations that increase wide scale surveillance of cervical pre-cancers and cancers.
Cervical cancer is the second leading cause of death for women worldwide; 85% of deaths occur in low and middle-income countries (LMICs), despite the fact that well-established interventions exist for pre-invasive disease.
Many low-resource countries lack the health care infrastructure required for the cytology-based screening and referral colposcopic diagnosis that have dramatically reduced the disease burden in wealthier countries. Calla’s vision is to sustainably improve women’s access to cancer prevention.
