Cervical Cancer Screening and Dysplasia Treatment Training Program
Decreasing cervical cancer incidence, morbidity and mortality
Cervical cancer is preventable and can be cured if diagnosed at an early stage and treated promptly.
Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer among women globally, with an estimated 604,000 new cases and 342,000 deaths in 2020. About 90% of the new cases and deaths worldwide in 2020 occurred in low and middle-income countries (WHO, 2020).
The Project C.U.R.E. Cervical Cancer Screening and Dysplasia Treatment Training Program helps train local providers and is designed to teach effective screening and treatment techniques in low-resource areas around the world. This program follows the guidelines and protocols for cervical cancer screening and treatment developed by the World Health Organization (2021).
Empowering Local Healthcare
We believe in sustainability and believe that local health care providers are the best conduit to help patients understand the need for screening and then to provide these services at one location during one visit (see-and treat). The Project C.U.R.E. Cervical Cancer Screening and Dysplasia Treatment Training Program is comprehensive and focuses on teaching about detection of dysplasia using visual identification of cervical lesions with acetic acid (VIA) of cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia (CIN) lesions 2 and 3, followed by immediate treatment using thermal ablation with a thermocoagulator device, when appropriate.
This program includes multiple training modules, step-by-step written procedures and protocols, written patient education materials, as well as self-evaluations to help learners access working knowledge and skills required to proceed independently with cervical dysplasia screening and treatment.
