The virtual course on comprehensive cervical cancer control is designed to promote education and training for health providers in the prevention and control of cervical cancer. The course modules are organized around the natural history of the disease, covering aspects related to primary prevention through vaccination against HPV and the detection and treatment of precancerous lesions. The course also addresses aspects of the diagnosis and treatment of invasive cervical cancer, as well as the provision of palliative care.
Furthermore, the course addresses community mobilization for the use of preventive cancer services for cancer and provides information on organizing preventive services, and on organizing programs for cervical cancer control.
This is a free course aimed at health sector workers directly involved in the management of cervical cancer. It is especially useful for medical and nursing teams working at the primary care level and for students in programs such as medicine, nursing, and public health. Managers of health programs can also benefit from this course.
