Summary

IMA World Health provides cervical cancer prevention and control activities to women in the Mara region of northern Tanzania through cervical cancer screenings. IMA also provide community awareness and education to improving screening, early diagnosis and treatment of cervical cancer.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Cervical cancer, the most common cancer in Tanzania is the leading cause of cancer related deaths of women in the country, with the occurrence of cervical cancer nine times higher than that of Europe and America according to the World Health Organization. Being HIV positive increases the risk of developing cervical cancer while limited cervical cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment services are major contributing factors. This program will provide cancer screenings to over 100,000 women.

How will this project solve this problem?

IMA's Cervical Cancer Prevention & Control program offers cervical cancer screening as well as treatment to women aged 30 to 50 years and all HIV positive women, irrespective of age. In addition, the program incorporates cervical cancer awareness messaging into activities and/or class work.

Potential Long Term Impact

This program will help thousands of women in the Mara region by providing effective screening methods for early detection and treatment of cervical cancer thus increasing their chances for survival.
