Enjoying Life, Saving Women from Cervical Cancer

URDT under the Gender Community Cooperation Development Programme (GCCDP), is implementing a three-year project titled “Enjoying Life, Saving Women from Cervical Cancer”, in partnership with Female Cancer Foundation (FCF), and with support from Uganda Cancer Institute (UCI), African Rural University (ARU), Kagadi District Local Government, Kagadi Hospital and other stakeholders.

This is a pilot project that is being implemented in Kagadi District to prevent precancerous lesion to turn into cancer of the cervix through health education, providing cervical cancer screening and treatment services to the women in the local communities of the district, this project commenced in July 2017 and the planned end date is July 2020.




This pilot project is targeting the prevention of precancerous lesions from turning into cancer through the “See and Treat” methodology approved by the World Health Organization (WHO), by visual inspection with an acetic acid solution (VIA),

Trained health workers screen women in a low resource setting for precancerous lesions. If found VIA positive the woman is treated with cryotherapy or cold coagulation according to the single visit approach, to prevent precancerous lesions progression into cervical cancer. The method is cost effective and the required training is easily obtained.

Project vision
