Cervical Cancer

Tanzania suffers one of the highest cervical cancer burdens in the world and the highest in East Africa. Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer related morbidity and mortality of women in the country.

However limited knowledge amongst health care providers and the general public about cervical cancer burdens, its prevention and control services is one of the major challenges in implementing Tanzania’s National Cervical Cancer Prevention and Control Strategic Plan (2011-2015).
