Study: Cervical Cancer in Women living with HIV

Women living with HIV are at an increased risk of developing cervical cancer. We conducted an important study in identifying gaps in the continuum of care for cervical cancer screening in women living with HIV in care at Newlands Clinic, together with Dr Kati Taghavi et al, our Swiss partners in the IeDEA collaboration.

The study identified the need for early screening, treatment and follow up to prevent cervical cancer. We also demonstrated that evaluation of the care cascade can be simplified, which supports its scalability. If scaled-up, the cascade approach may be useful in supporting the WHO goal to eliminate cervical cancer.
