Cervical cancer screening and treatment in low-resource settings: Practical Experience from PATH

Strategic planning and Situation AssessmentFrom 2006 to 2011, PATH conducted demonstration projects in four low- and middle-income countries—India, Peru, Uganda, and Vietnam—to provide evidence for decision-making about public-sector introduction of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines. The Cervical Cancer Prevention: Practical Experience Series summarizes lessons learned from these projects that can help guide future HPV vaccination program planning, especially in low-resource settings around the globe. Additional units in this series will be available soon.

This unit, Cervical Cancer Screening and Treatment examines the second component of a successful cervical cancer prevention program—screening and treatment of adult women for precancerous lesions.
