Integrated Cervical Cancer Screening in Kigandalo, Uganda

Self-collection based cervical cancer screening in rural Uganda

Uganda has not yet implemented a comprehensive national screening program, which has contributed to high cervical cancer rates in the country. Cervical cancer screening is offered opportunistically, especially in rural regions, largely as a result of resource constraints.

In partnership with the Uganda Cancer Institute, we will be conducting a 3-armed randomized controlled trial in the rural Mayuge region of Uganda. The goal of this project is to compare 3 different implementation approaches for HPV-self collection based screening at a population level. This will be used to inform the national scale-up for cervical cancer screening.
