Self-collection of samples for HPV testing shows promise in detection of cervical cancer in Kenya
by William Shawn Davis published May 08, 2013 last modified May 08, 2013 10:27 AM — filed under:
In Kenya, women face a cervical cancer mortality rate that is approximately 10 times as high as in the United States. A study by researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill suggests that training women to self-collect genital samples to test for human papillomavirus (HPV), the causative agent of cervical cancer, can increase the coverage rates of cervical cancer screening. Higher screening coverage helps increase rates of detection of cervical lesions and ultimately treatment of the disease.
