Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu: A useful evening spent with Prebo and Richard at World Health Organization

Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu shared a post on LinkedIn:

“A useful evening spent with Prebo and Richard at World Health Organization earlier this week. I am concerned we are not adopting the cervical cancer elimination agenda in its totality. As we ramp up vaccination, partners have to make intentional efforts with the other 2 pillars of the agenda.

US Data below from 61 shows a huge drop of invasive cases when intensive screening was introduced. We need to do same and integrate screen and treat clinics in our PHC system and clinics.”
