The project integrates a strategy of multi-dimensional care for HIV/AIDS with a program of prevention and treatment for HPV/Cervical Carcinoma like development of a more complete action for promotion of reproductive health.
The work presently promoted by New Humanity covers a global approach to the promotion of women’s health in the Region surrounding Fontem, Cameroon. The project pays particular attention to the sociocultural context in the provision of the medical care and takes advantage of the synergy for health intervention against AIDS and Cervical Carcinoma.
In the Cameroon, AIDS has an incidence of 6,9% (2003) and the cervical carcinoma has a standardized incidence for ages (ASR) of 30.1 – 40.0 per 100,000 (2002), but only 5% of women undergo screening.
This reflects minimal oversight for AIDS, for sexually transmitted diseases, and for Aids-correlated tumoral pathologies.
