mHealth And Cervical Cancer Prevention

October 15, 2019
12:00pm to 1:00pm

The Duke Global Health Institute host a lecture, "Can mHealth Bridge the Implementation Gaps in Cervical Cancer Prevention? A Case Study from Kenya," featuring director of the Center for Global Reproductive Health at Duke Megan Huchko, MD, MPH, and graduate research and teaching assistant Jacob Stocks, MSc. Lunch will be provided.

In 2018, the WHO challenged the global health community to set its sights on cervical cancer elimination, defining ambitious public health targets to meet that goal. Despite the increased momentum, women in underserved areas around the world continue to get caught in the gap between effective cervical cancer prevention technologies and the realities of their environment. Megan Huchko will describe her work to understand and address the barriers that women in western Kenya face to successfully complete the cervical cancer cascade, and Jacob Stocks will talk about his experience working with providers on the ground to develop a mobile app to address some of these barriers.
