The Odysseus Foundation
The Odysseus Foundation is a different kind of charity.
We're straightforward, transparent and innovative.
And we're working to make a real change in the world where it's needed most.
There are already lots of great charities out there working to find a cure for cancer. We are addressing the prevention and detection of breast and cervical cancer in developing countries and socially-excluded communities around the world. Until there's a cure, there will always be a need for the work we're doing.
While infectious diseases dominate the health care and social agendas, there is a lack of recognition of cancer as a major public health priority.
Few people are aware of the growing burden of breast and cervical cancer in developing countries. But more people die from cancer than from AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
Our goal is to help women in developing countries and socially-excluded communities around the world to lead healthy, productive lives, by giving them the basic human right of healthcare.
