- Create a Cervical Cancer Prevention Network, a system of country programs delivering critical prevention services, with Ethiopia serving as the hub
- Orient selected health professionals to the Network’s model of the single-visit approach and train them in cervical cancer screening and treatment at one of five “center of excellence” university hospitals in Ethiopia
- Conduct bilateral tours between countries to provide hands-on training and mentoring of skills, including visual inspection of the cervix with an acetic acid wash, cryotherapy, and Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure
Regional Cervical Cancer Prevention

In five countries in sub-Saharan Africa, we’re investing in a unique cervical cancer prevention network to expand the successful single-visit approach and encourage cross-country learning.
