What is it about?
Cervical cancer (CC) is one of the leading causes of cancer death in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), where CC burden is worsened by HIV epidemics. To benchmark progress, we examined temporal trends in screening coverage, percent screened at least twice by the age of 45, screening coverage among women living with HIV (WLHIV), and pre-cancer treatment coverage in SSA.
