An Integrated Mobile Model

Reaching Women in Remote Areas of Zambia by Building on HIV/AIDS Platforms for Cervical Cancer Services Delivery

July 24 2014


Top Ten Cancers in Zambia

Treated at Cancer Diseases Hospital

of Zambia in 2012

  • PCI implements comprehensive HIV and AIDS capacity building interventions in all 54 Zambia Defence Force (ZDF) units and surrounding communities
  • Funded by PEPFAR through the US Department of Defense (DOD)
  • Plus-up funding from the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon (PRRR) Initiative
  • Population of 300,000 – 90% civilians
  • Most military units are in hard-to-reach and underserved rural Zambia
  • ZDF runs a parallel health system with primary health facilities available in all the units
  • Program implemented August 2011-April 2014
facilitating factors for rapid adaptation and scale up
Facilitating Factors For Rapid Adaptation and Scale Up
  • Existing Ministry of Health cervical cancer screening program using the “Screen-and-Treat” model with integrated cervicography
  • Existing ZDF mobile HIV testing and counseling (HTC) program
  • Existing system and tools for HIV behavior change communication (BCC) programs
  • Buy-in from ZDF leadership
why an integrated mobile model with integrated cervicography
Why An Integrated Mobile Model with Integrated Cervicography?

Generalized HIV epidemic and second highest incidence rate of cervical cancer globally

Association between HIV-related immunosuppression and a higher prevalence, incidence and persistence of HPV and progression to cervical lesions

Sensitivity of VIA with digital cervicography is higher than cervical cytology: 84% Vs 61% (Bateman et al, 2014)

Digital Cervicography: built-in quality assurance system and continuing education

Mobile model: Rural population has poor access to cervical cancer diagnosis, treatment and prevention services

The Integrated Mobile Model Cont’d

Peer educators and drama groups conduct pre-interventions campaigns

Mobile HIV counseling and testing provided in tents outside the health facility

Women are offered cervical cancer screening services

Cervical cancer screening provided to consenting women inside the health facility

Intra-clinic and self referrals accepted and offered Provider Initiated Testing and Counseling (PITC)

lessons learned
Lessons Learned

Pre-intervention demand creation activities really create demand and clear up misconceptions about cervical cancer screening

In settings with generalized HIV epidemics and high cervical cancer incidence rates, providing timely integrated screening and HIV testing and treatment services save women’s lives

Leadership involvement and buy-in result in seamless implementation of programs

  • Pulling health personnel from an already over-stretched system to participate in mobile services
  • Referral mechanisms from LEEP services to diagnostic and treatment services weak
  • Gas not always available and expensive
  • CANCER DISEASE HOSPITAL ZAMBIA (2012). Cancer Registry: Cancer Disease Hospital
  • CENTRAL STATISTICAL OFFICE ZAMBIA (2010). Census of Population Report: Central Statistical Office
  • CENTRAL STATISTICAL OFFICE ZAMBIA (2007). Demographic and Health Survey: Central Statistical Office
