Why We Do It
The cervical cancer burden is high in Nigeria, despite being one of the most common and treatable forms of cancer.
Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among women in sub-Saharan Africa.
Despite this, cervical cancer screening rates are low in Nigeria and other sub-Saharan countries because of multiple barriers.
Due to this
Nigeria has one of the highest burdens of cervical cancer in Africa, with an estimated 14,943 new cervical cases and 10,403 related deaths annually.
How we do it
We believe that the best way to inspire the uptake of HPV self collection and vaccination within any given community is from within the community.
It has been proven that the vaccination of adolescent girls is the most effective long-term intervention for reducing cervical cancer risk.
HPV self collection among women is important for detection of the disease in its early-stages when it can be properly treated.
Feminine power is silent, dark, mysterious, healing, nurturing. A woman can walk into a room and control it if she knows where her power is.
