Saving a life

LESBIA LISSETH ARGUETA CUYUCH, HEALTHCARE PROGRAM

Saving a life

Lesbia Argueta is a healthcare volunteer with a very clear work approach, the prevention of cervical cancer in women, whose mortality rate is located in Guatemala as follows: out of every 1,500 cases detected, 700 women die each year. After receiving training in 2016, she became involved in training, counseling, and health promotion in her community.

Her motto is clear:
a timely diagnosis saves women.

Because of this, Doña Lesbia implements different strategies, such as the development of medical and diagnostic days for gynecological problems, something that in many communities remains a taboo topic.
Even though her struggle is never ending and in 2018 two serious cases were identified, the greatest satisfaction for her is that women are receiving the right treatment. Her motto is clear: “a timely diagnosis saves women.”
