Cancer early detection and prevention
Mobile cervical cancer screening in Pune city, India

In Pune city, Maharashtra, India, an innovative approach is being taken to providing cervical cancer screening to women who otherwise would not get access to screening: The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) supports the Prayas screening programme.
A mobile screening clinic – a specially-equipped van – visits areas of the city where women who otherwise couldn’t afford to take the time to visit a clinic can benefit from cervical cancer screening. The mobile clinic also has facilities for treating women whose screening results are positive.
Colposcopy, biopsy and other treatment can be provided at a clinic in Prayas which is also involved with the programme.
