Creating Access to Better Health 

This contribution was used to upgrade medical services at the Hospital Universitario Pedro Ernesto in Rio de Janeiro. This contribution leveraged a donation of MRI machinery from the US Government valued at $827,268. This hospital is located within a vulnerable community with a population that generally does not have access to sophisticated diagnostic services; by providing such services we are increasing the chances of early detection of illnesses, and likelihood of survival. The Rio hospital that received this equipment considers it particularly valuable, as it is an actively used facility that performs approximately 1,000 surgeries and 30,000 medical procedures per month.
