CerviCusco – Rural Campaign

One of the major components of working at CerviCusco is that they often organize pap smear screening campaigns in rural communities.  These campaigns give rural women the opportunity to be screened for cervical cancer, an opportunity that they would not otherwise have (due to the distance they would have to travel to reach the nearest town/clinic).

 Some of the local women waiting in line to be registered…for many of these women, this is the first pap smear they have had in their lives.  On this particular day/campaign, I think we screened about 100 women!  On some campaigns, there have been up to 300 patients screened in one day!

More waiting…

Before any of the women enter an exam room, they are required to watch a brief informational video on pap smear and cervical cancer screening.

I had the pleasant opportunity to work with a team of nursing students from Georgia Health Sciences University (GHSU) who spent a week working at CerviCusco.

Once all the samples are collected for the day, they are taken back to the clinic in Cusco where they are later process and reviewed for any evidence of cancerous lesions.  Each patient is informed about a month later of their results, and whether they will need any further care.

Overall, CerviCusco has an outstanding system of cervical screening campaigns, and has already screened (and further treated) hundreds of women within the surrounding rural areas of Cusco, who otherwise would never receive such medical care.
