Cervical Cancer Screening - highlighted as a successful Scotland/Malawi partnership

In Malawi, cervical cancer is the most frequent cancer among women of a reproductive and economically important age (45.4% of female cancers), with an 80% mortality, with numbers projected to increase over the next two decades.

A recent article on the Scottish Government's 10th anniversary of international development highlighted the Sustainable Programme of Cervical Cancer Screening undertaken by University of Edinburgh researchers as one of the successful Scotland/Malawi partnerships.

In Malawi cervical cancer is the commonest cancer in women - the overall aim of this project is to help reduce burden and mortality
