Why is it important?

This research shows that the prevalence of cervical cancer is significantly higher than those studies conducted in developed countries and serves as a baseline for future researches to be conducted in the area.


I got the initiative to do this research after witnessing relatively higher number of cervical cancer Biopsy signouts as compared to other malignancies. We wanted a data to accurately showcase the magnitude of cervical cancer in the area which can be used as an input to strengthen the ongoing preventive measures. I am grateful to my coauthors for supporting the idea.
