A new health movement to reduce cervical cancer in India
In India, cervical cancer kills on average one woman every eight minutes. Screening for the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) can significantly reduce the incidence of this type of cancer. GenePath Diagnostics is working with I-SHARE towards the goal of reducing cervical cancer in India as per the WHO targets. This article by Dr. Nikhil Phadke speaks about the plan to attain this goal by using the highly sensitive HPV testing by DNA. This will be achieved with support from CSR initiatives, individual donors who would like to support the cause, NGOs working in this space who would like to collaborate, and doctors and hospitals serving needy patients.
