Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the world and the most common cancer in various parts of the developing world. Despite being preventable, cervical cancer is responsible for severe suffering as women lack knowledge, suffer the symptoms of the disease and treatment, are failed health care systems, are subject to traditional beliefs and medicines, suffer emotionally and financially, and are failed by their support systems. This lecture will highlight cervical cancer and tell the story of Africa’s women suffering from this disease.
