Beyond AIDS - Supporting Ethiopian Women to Access Cervical Cancer Screening
This brief provides a concise overview of recent activities of the Addis Tesfa cervical cancer prevention project in Ethiopia. Addis Tesfa brings highly effective, yet very simple, cervical cancer prevention methods to women living with HIV. The brief touches on Pathfinder’s work building the capacity of health care providers in the single-visit approach (where cervical cancer screening and treatment of precancerous lesions occur during the same visit), as well as the project’s efforts to raise awareness of cervical cancer among women living with HIV and plans for scaling up the single-visit approach throughout the country.
We believe change starts with expertly trained providers and pharmacies that never run out of supplies. It starts with open conversations among women, young people, men, religious leaders, mothers-in-law, policymakers, and others, joining to discuss their beliefs and remove barriers to their health and well-being. Our 2014 Annual Report shows a few highlights of how Pathfinder has served as a catalyst for change over the past year.
This technical brief discusses Pathfinder's experience designing and operationalizing a two-tiered implementation model for partnering with local organizations in Egypt.
