Equatorial Guinea Prioritizes Women’s Health, Launches Early Diagnosis of Cervical-Uterine Cancer Project

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea has prioritized women’s health with the launch of the Early Diagnosis, Prevention, and Treatment of Cervical-Uterine Cancer Project, which aims to develop more population information regarding cervical-uterine cancer, and work to prevent cases from increasing further.

Preparatory work began on the Project in February with visual inspection of acetic acid and thermal clotting.

The Government of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea has guaranteed universal access to sexual health services and set up a program of reproductive health in order to prevent and eliminate cervical-uterine cancer.

The Project was launched at the Doctor Damián Roku Epitie Monanga Hospital in Bata.
