Cervical Cancer Screening and Treatment for Tanzanian Women (CERTAN)
The Cervical Cancer Screening and Treatment for Tanzanian Women (CERTAN) project in the Mara region of Tanzania. The above slide show provides some information regarding the project that the Bonds Meadow Rotary Club is currently supporting. (2016-present) The most common form of cervical cancer starts with pre-cancerous changes and there are ways to stop this disease from developing. The first way is to find and treat pre-cancers before they become true cancers, and the second is to prevent the pre-cancers. The most important thing you can do to prevent cervical cancer is to be tested.
For more information regarding the background of this epidemic and why Rotary became involved in this project, you can read the Cervical Cancer Awareness among Women in Tanzania: An Analysis of Data from the 2011-12 Tanzania HIV and Malaria Indicators Survey here.
