Cervical Cancer initiative and AGIR ENSEMBLE

Cervical Cancer initiative and AGIR ENSEMBLE

AGIR ENSEMBLE has organized a training in diagnostic of cervical precancerous lesions (VIA and VILI) and treatment (Cryotherapy) in the city of Goma/DRC from January 8-9/2011 at BUNGWE Hotel.
This kind of event is the first in our country and also in the great lake region (DRC, Rwanda, and Burundi). We have trained 8 health professionals (doctors and nurses) to give them the necessary skills in diagnostic and treatment of precancerous lesions.
This program is supported by UICC and will continue for 6 month as a Cervical Cancer Prevention Campaign.
A workshop is scheduled in a few days from January 22-23, 2011 and has the am of making available a guideline to allow nurses to sensitize women to adhere to the program.
This program is technically supported by the North Kivu Provincial Health Division and health facilities (Hospitals and Health centers) of the city of Goma.
The big challenge for this program is that we don’t have the cryotherapy machine for treatment of precancer and we make a call to any one who could help million of women in this great lake region to have access to treatment to avoid them developing cervical cancer, which is now a 100% preventable disease.

Thank you,

Mateus K. Sahani, M.D.
