About Cervical Cancer:
Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women, and the seventh overall, with an estimated 528,000 new cases in 2012. The large majority (85%) of the global burden occurs in less developed regions where it accounts for almost 12% of all female cancers. High-risk regions, with estimated ASRs over 30 per 100,000, include Eastern Africa (42.7), Melanesia (33.3), Southern (31.5) and Middle (30.6) Africa, the latter of which includes the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). DRC has a population of 69,575, and of those 34,969 are women and 21 million women are age 15 years and older and thus at risk of developing cervical cancer.  

From July 2016 – September 2017 the Biamba Marie Mutombo hospital nurses screened 14,300 women (to date >15,030), of which 884 were treated with thermocoagulation and 47 with Leep for precancer (931)194 were biopsied because they had cervical lesions highly suspicions for invasive cancer.
