Action needed to prevent cervical cancer

In the June issue of the Pacific Journal of Reproductive Health, Dr Rufina Latu in an editorial, wrote:

ā€œIn the Pacific, there is a need to establish simple, practical and yet cost-effective cancer control programmes. We need to work with experts and key departments to set standards, promote surveillance, encourageĀ evidence-basedĀ prevention, early detection and treatment, and palliative care tailored to different country settings and resource capacities. If well-planned, it is possible to establish a comprehensive cancer programme designed to reduce the number of cancer cases and deaths, and improve quality of life for cancer patients, through a systematic and equitable implementation of evidence-based strategies for prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment and palliation, making the best use of available resources in a multi- disciplinary participatory approach.ā€Ā Ā The full article can be readĀ here
