First Lady Praises Rwanda's New Cervical Cancer Prevention Plan

Starting in January 2020, the new programme will complement the existing efforts that have mainly been focusing on getting young girls -mainly 12-year-olds- vaccinated against cervical cancer as well as screening services and treatment for older women. It will use new technologies to improve access to screening for cervical cancer.

First Lady Jeannette Kagame has commended a new programme that will provide cervical cancer prevention to women aged between 30-49.
