Improved Access to Cervical Cancer Screening and Treatment for Women Living with HIV in Central Zambia


Cervical cancer is preventable and curable if detected early and managed effectively. In Zambia, it is the fourth-most common form of cancer among women ages 15-49 years. Women living with HIV (WLWH) are six times more likely than those who are HIV-negative to develop cervical cancer and should be targeted for screening and treatment (Dryden-Peterson S, et al, 2016:34).

The USAID Supporting an AIDS-Free Era (SAFE) program supports the Ministry of Health (MOH) in conducting cervical cancer screening and treatment services targeting WLWH in 21 program-supported sites in the Central Province. This poster was presented at the AIDS 2022 Conference in Montreal.
