The aim of this research was to explore facilitators and barriers to providing CC care from women’s and healthcare provider perspectives in order to reduce incidence of CC through improved service delivery and update in Zambia. Gaps that have been identified: poor referral and follow up systems of patients; poor integration of ART and cervical cancer clinics; lack of access to funds to the facility on samples to be tested; long waiting times for results after biopsy; lack of correct information on cervical cancer.
