Fielding the thermocoagulation devices

After a successful and exciting launch to the program in August 2019, the three Wisap thermocoagulation devices were transported to their respective permanent sites across Hue, along with the newly trained staff.  During the month of September, an additional 430 women received screening while the three sites integrated the early cervical cancer screening techniques into their existing services.  

Updated statistics for the months of October and November will be shared on our website before the end of the year. We have also identified the need for strategy development with the local teams.  High return rates for screening suggest that the awareness campaigns may need to identify villages that were not previously targeted by the program to improve the collective impact of the new equipment.  We are also seeking feedback from the providers on their impressions of the new services, and any changes or additional support that they will need to manage a successful program in 2020. 

As part of our next steps, HERHealthEQ is working with Cure Cervical Cancer to further develop a long-term strategy of support for Vietnam, including participating in discussions with the Vietnamese Ministry of Health regarding testing and medical staffing protocols that will increase the availability of diagnostic testing.
