Cervical Cancer Prevention in Peru: Lessons Learned from the TATI Demonstration Project
In Peru, cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women. In low-resource settings, the usefulness has been demonstrated of a 'see, triage, and treat' approach consisting of Visual Inspection with Acetic Acid (VIA) for screening, Visual Inspection with Acetic Acid Magnified (VIAM) as a triage test, and treatment by cryotherapy. In the region of San Martín, Peru, such a low-resource setting, a cervical cancer demonstration project was developed to evaluate the population effectiveness of this 'see, triage, and treat' approach. This page provides a summary and access to the full-text report.  (15/Dec/2006)
