In October 2008, the ACCESS-FP Program, MCHIP’s predecessor program, expanded and supported cervical cancer screening and treatment activities in Guyana. Following on the success of those efforts, MCHIP’s involvement in Guyana began in October 2010 to assist USAID in scaling up and strengthening cervical cancer prevention for women who are HIV+ as well as for women from the general population.
This close-out report details MCHIP’s collaboration with the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation and the Ministry of Health to train additional providers in cervical cancer prevention, to raise awareness about the problem of cervical cancer and how it can be prevented, and to improve quality of care at cervical cancer prevention sites. It also highlights the program’s results—including MCHIP’s achievement of near national coverage of cervical cancer screening services, having supported 18 service delivery sites in nine of the 10 regions of the country.
