Cervical Cancer Screening Test Studied in Peru
A promising new procedure for cervical cancer screening is being tested as part of a joint project of PAHO and Peru's Ministry of Health. The project, TATI-2, will evaluate the population effectiveness of cervical cancer screening using visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA), a rapid-results procedure designed for use in low-resource settings such as those found in developing countries. VIA is an alternative to the Pap smear, the most widely used method of screening for cervical cancer among women in industrialized countries.(28/Aug/2006)
