Addis Tesfa May 2011 Project Brief
This project brief highlights key implementation activities and successes achieved in the first year of Pathfinder's Addis Tesfa (or "New Hope") project in Ethiopia, including the establishment of a national technical working group for cervical cancer prevention and the provision of clinical training for HIV and AIDS services providers, and discusses what interventions the project will engage in during the second implementation phase.
The Single-Visit Approach as a Cervical Cancer Prevention Strategy Among Women With HIV in Ethiopia: Successes and Lessons Learned
With the single-visit approach for cervical cancer prevention, women with positive “visual inspection of the cervix with acetic acid wash” test results receive immediate treatment of the precancerous lesion with cryotherapy. The approach worked successfully for women with HIV in Ethiopia in secondary and tertiary health facilities, with high screening and cryotherapy treatment rates.
This practical guide presents evidence and example activities that serve as a resource for program implementers and planners working to prevent HIV among female sex workers (FSWs), men who have sex with men (MSM), and people who inject drugs (PWID).
