La Fondation Cuomo s’associe à l'AME-International, au Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace (CHPG) et au Gouvernement Princier, représenté par la Coopération monégasque, dans un partenariat inédit visant à améliorer la détection et le traitement du cancer du sein et des cancers pelviens en Afrique.
 

A ground-breaking partnership between the Cuomo Foundation, AME-International, the Princess Grace Hospital Centre (CHPG), and the Princely Government, represented by Monégasque Cooperation, aims to improve breast and pelvic cancer screening and treatment in Africa.

The National Hospital Centre of Pikine (CHNP) in Dakar, Senegal, will be the location for implementing this innovative project, which uses state-of-the-art technology that has already been effectively employed at the CHPG in the Principality of Monaco.

Without the necessity for surgery, it permits the quick and exact identification of impacted sentinel lymph nodes and their targeted excision. 

Pikine Hospital will now be able to provide these non-invasive treatments to its patients not only in Senegal but throughout the sub-region, thanks to the equipment funded by the Cuomo Foundation and AME International, as well as receiving the training provided by specialists from the Princess Grace Hospital Centre, both on-site in Senegal and Monaco.
