The aim of this project has been to improve women’s access to cervical cancer prevention and care following a cascade strategy in Northern Mozambique. Results to date one dedicate examination room for VIA has been established; biopsies are possible now with analysis in Nampula; and LEEP is available on site now (equipment, health worker trained). Some challenges that should be addressed in future: what happen after 2nd referral? Can having an examination room integrated inside the HIV clinic improve screening and treatment uptake?
