The founders of FHM have been supporting women's health care in the Leogane area since June 1993. FHM's primary efforts have been focused on cervical cancer prevention and FHM was one of the co-founders of the cervical cancer prevention alliance, Haiti sans Cervical Cancer. FHM introduced HPV testing to Haiti and has screened over 50,000 women. FHM supports the Carmelle Voltaire Women's Health Center (CVWHC) in Tom Gato, Haiti, which is one of the training sites for the Faculté des Sciences Infirmières de l'Université Épiscopale d'Haïti.
