Invitation To A 10 Day Cervical Cancer Screening Training/workshop by Uwoshe: 9:31am On May 02, 2012

Interactive Training Workshop to set up Screening Programme for Prevention of Cervical Cancer using a Low Cost method, with Visual Inspection with Acetic Acid (VIA) and Lugol’s iodine (VILI) and Treatment with Cryotherapy.

Cervical cancer is second commonest cancer in the world. Approximately 300,000 women die annually of cervical cancer, and 80% are in the developing countries including Nigeria. This health problem is preventable, yet it is not prevented in Nigeria. Whereas it is almost becoming a rare disease in developed countries but it is common in Nigeria. About 4-6 new cases are seen every week at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital. Cervical cancer is common in Nigeria because of low level of awareness concerning the diseases even among the health care providers and lack of effective screening programs.
