Donation of equipment & supplies

Started in 2009, the Equipment and Supplies Donation Program aims to help public and philanthropic hospitals set up or improve existing mammography services. The program has now donated 23 mammography machines from the north to the south of Brazil.

20 mammography machines in fixed units from north to south of Brazil

Of the 23 mammography machines donated, 20 are installed in fixed units from the north to the south of the country, both in SUS units and in philanthropic institutions.

3 mammography machines in northern Brazil in mobile units

Of the 23 mammography machines donated, 3 were installed in mobile units, including the mobile unit of the Patrocínio Cancer Hospital - Dr. José Figueiredo and the mammography machines on the Brazilian Navy ships Dr. Montenegro and Auxiliary Ship Pará, which provide access to mammography for the riverside populations of Amazonas and Pará.

Donation of inputs

In addition to mammography devices, the program has also benefited health services in 13 states by donating image scanners (CRs), stereotactic tables, dry printers, vacuum biopsy kits and systems, peripherals, core biopsy and mammotomy needles, mammography films, among other supplies. The number of mammograms already carried out on the donated mammography machines is currently 1,100,000 (one million one hundred thousand), but this number is increasing every day, as the tests are carried out continuously.
