Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women worldwide, according to the National Cancer Institute. Researchers and faculty at the Duke Center for Global Women’s Health Technologies (GWHT) — including Duke Cancer Institute members Megan Huchko, MD, MPH, and Nimmi Ramanujam, PhD — have committed to addressing barriers to early detection of the disease, and mechanisms for cervical cancer screening through education, technology and cultural awareness. This includes the development of the pocket Colposcope and a new iteration, the Callascope.
