PinkDrive, South Africa’s best-loved Breast Cancer Community Carer, is the indispensable, tangible breast cancer Non-Profit Company (NPC), powering South Africa’s mobile Women’s Health Mammography and Gynaecology Units. PinkDrive’s underlying message is ‘Early Detection Saves Lives’.
All PinkDrive units travel to semi-urban and urban areas around South Africa with the aim of enabling all medically uninsured access to women’s health services. These services include free education on women’s health, free mammograms, free pap smears, free clinical examinations and how to do breast self-examinations.
The first mobile screening unit successfully launched in the Western Cape in 2011 and operated through local clinics, community health centers and hospitals. PinkDrive has extended our service to the Gauteng region and offers the same cancer screening services.
To bridge the gap of inaccessibility of access to affordable and convenient cancer screening services, PinkDrive, with the sponsorship of Metropolitan Health, opened the ‘Hello Clinic ‘ at the Pretoria station.
PinkDrive also has representation in KwaZulu Natal.
