Screening and expansion of cervical cancer services
By Michelle Therrien - Executive Director
Hue clinic staff, screening women every day!
In the early months of the screening and treatment project in Hue, Vietnam, we are thrilled to announce that more than 2,000 women have received screening and treatment for cervical cancer across the three clinics: Viet Nhat Clinic, Institute of Cancer Research & Community Health Development, and Nam Dong District Hospital. We are well on target to meet our goal for the first two years, but we are hoping to achieve even more.
We are developing our strategy to ensure that we reach the most women in need of service with the three devices. Cure Cervical Cancer is working with us to assess the abnormal pap smear rates in the region, and to compare the prevalence of cervical cancer in Hue with other parts of Vietnam. Once we have this information, we can use it to target the screening program to reach women at high risk for cervical cancer.
We are extremely grateful for your support in these early months in providing rapid treatment for the women identified, preventing them from advancing to later stages of cancer. Please spread the word and help us to deliver care to even more women around the world. We could not accomplish our goals without the support of the GlobalGiving community!
