This study involves having approximately 3,000 women perform HPV self–collection.

The women who are HPV+ will then be treated with thermal ablation, which uses heat to treat cervical pre-cancer.

The Celgene-Bristol Myers Squibb research project examines the feasibility and acceptability of HPV self-collection and thermal ablation in rural and urban settings. The project will take place at two sites: The Family Health Ministry (FHM), a clinic in the Leogane commune, and the St. Luke’s/Manitane clinic in Port au Prince.

Our work in the Dominican Republic

BHI provided cervical cancer training to health providers in the Dominican Republic.  The availability of treatment for advanced cervical cancer allowed one of our Haitian patients to receive a life-saving course of chemotherapy.
