Important school visit

July 5, 2019

Cancer of the cervix (Ca Cx) is the most common gynaecological malignancy among women in Uganda contributing about 80% of all female malignancies. The incidence rate is 40:100 000. It is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in females in Uganda. Unfortunately, 80% of the patients present late and this makes treatment outcomes unsatisfactory. Most patients can only be treated with palliative care. With support from the government we carried out free immunisation of girls between 8 - 10 yrs against cervical cancer.

This vaccination provides lifetime protection against human papilloma virus responsible for causing cancer of the cervix.

This is why Herona Hospital Health Camp Clinics are vitally important.
