The Global Academy for Women's Health, Inc. is a non-profit organization with mission to advance education and science for women's health globally. The Academy integrates life-long non-profit activities of the founders and managers of BioSciCon, Inc., continuing their legacy to work for public benefit and save lives.
The Global Academy for Women's Health was incorporated in the State of Maryland in June of 2007 and is located in Rockville, MD, USA. The Academy, organized exclusively for educational and scientific purposes, qualifies as exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or corresponding section of any further federal tax code.
The advancement of science in the field of women's health is a dedication of the Global Academy. This includes supporting scientific research leading to public benefit by developing better technologies for early detection, prevention and diagnosis of diseases, which are intended to women globally. Prevention of gynecological malignancies, cervical cancer in particular, is the most immediate goal, since thousands of women still die each year of disease that could be easily prevented. Regretfully, 600, 000 women develop cervical cancer each year and above 300,000 women die, mostly in the developing world. The Global Academy helps developing affordable cytological cervical cancer screening methodology which, with telemedicine and home specimen self-collection, will give an unprecedented opportunity for women to participate in life-saving cervical cancer screening. Supporting the development of simple, low-cost devices affordable and accessible to many more women, Global Academy for Women’s Health hopes to be able to contribute to the reduction of women’s healthcare disparity.
In the field of education, the Academy is dedicated to developing high quality professional and public educational programs, organizing and conducting public forums and discussion groups, presenting lectures and workshops, publishing educational and scientific material (brochures and scientific papers) and writing health educational books for general audiences world-wide. Important part of this work is conducting surveys to access public opinion on crucial and controversial issues of women’s health. Surveys also help to validate the success of educational programs. The Academy will make efforts to help the advancement of women's health education courses at colleges and universities and local communities. The founder is an experienced medical school and university professor including Women's Health curricula.
In 2008, The Global Academy supported Drs. Olivera and Nenad Markovic to write the book "'What every woman should know about cervical cancer" that was published by renown international publisher, Springer. The book is available in hardcover, paperback, electronic and kindle editions. It is distributing worldwide and is well accepted (Springer.com), or Amazon.com.
