Every two minutes a woman dies of the cervical cancer somewhere in the world. Although this disease is preventable, we are not able yet to tackle this. However, more and more attention is put on this issue.
Cervical Cancer is a cancer of the reproductive system. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus that connects it to the vagina. Almost all cervical cancers are linked to infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV). Although most of the women will get rid of the virus themselves, only the minority will develop cervical cancer HPV can cause premalignant cervical lesions which can be detected during screening and once established can be treated easily in order to stop the development of cancer.
Cervical cancer is a preventable disease. Several ways are there to prevent women for developing. HPV vaccination (primary prevention) and regular cervical screening.

Regular screening is vital for preventing cervical cancer. For this reason, PRESCRIP-TEC programme makes this possibility available for you.
First, we will provide you with everything you need so you can make a self- testing at home to detect an infection with the human papillomavirus. Only in case the result is positive you will need further examination in a clinic. In that case, we will use cutting-edge technology and artificial intelligence to improve diagnosis and be able to begin the treatment in time in the even we detect a potential cancer.
Cervical cancer kills more than 200.000 women annually worldwide and disproportionately affects the poorest, most vulnerable women in many parts of the world. Unlike many other health problems, early identification and treatment of precancerous conditions can prevent cervical cancer. As the leading cancer killer among women in the majority of developing countries, cervical cancer generally strikes women when they are young and in midlife.
