Educating young women about cervical cancer

by Ian MagrathIan Magrath 24 Jan 2018 19:15

Dr Hemant raised the question of educating young women about cervical cancer. Talking about pelvic examinations, for example, is not considered an appropriate issue for young women to discuss. I wonder what they know about reproduction in general and sexually transmitted disease. Presumably nothing. But would parents who do know about these things feel it acceptable for their children to be uninformed until after marriage? If so, the ante-natal clinic would be the place where discussion about Cx cancer can be undertaken. Screening for Cx cancer is not, in any event, normally considered until the late 20s. There have been many studies relatijg to Cx cancer in India, and I assume these women are informed shortly before screening is done.

Treating cancer in low resource settings

by Ian MagrathIan Magrath 03 Aug 2014 16:59

Many health providers have considered cancer treatment too complex for the lowest resource countries. But there are a number of approaches to overcoming, at least, in part, this problem. Indeed, given the constant increase in the number of cancers in such countries, people who have cancer must be cared for in some way. INCTR would be interested to hear how low income countries have approached this problem - by health professionals or policy makers in such countries in particular.

The INCTR Community

by Ian MagrathIan Magrath 03 Aug 2014 15:03

INCTR members come from a wide range of backgrounds and many different countries. Through this site they are able to communicate with each other and discuss a broad range of topics. INCTR members represent the core of INCTR - they may suggest new projects, new soures of funding, critique ongoing projects and suggest how they can be improved. INCTR members receive a free copy of INCTR's major publication, Cancer Control, an annual which is published every year along with various supplements. We hope that the publication itself will invite discussion from INCTR members across the globe and that the association of the publication with INCTR membership will enable people from all walks of life, and a variety of health-related professions to have access to colleagues across the globe, leading to a greater understanding of the perspectives of different cultures on how we can work together to both reduce the incidence of cancer and to increase survival of those who have cancer.
