The medical professionals at PPWI aim to prevent or quickly detect signs of cervical cancer by emphasizing regular screenings. Simple Pap tests search for problems, and the health centers can also perform colposcopies to further investigate and remove potentially problematic cells. By removing precancerous cells from the cervix, medical professionals can often prevent harm before the cancer develops. PPWI does not turn away any patient seeking treatment, but the organization relies on outside donations to fund services for women who do not have insurance.
