PPO-Clinical offers free Pap smear tests

 Provincial Population Office-Clinical Services

 
         The Provincial Population Office-Clinical Services offered free Pap smear, or Pap test, serving 20 clients in Brgy. Lumot, Cavinti on 03 April 2018; and 32 undergoing both Pap test and breast examination for female members of Kabalikat Civicom 35 Chapter of Laguna in Brgy. Labuin, Sta. Cruz,  in addition to 14 more clients undergoing both Pap test and Visual Inspection of the Cervix with Acetic Acid (VIA) on 04 April in Brgy. Gatid Rural Health Unit (RHU).

        Meanwhile, the rest of the Clinical staff participated in a Visual Inspection of the Cervix with Acetic Acid (VIA) Workshop and Community Service sponsored by AOGIN Philippines held at the Laguna Medical Center, Sta. Cruz Laguna.

         VIA is a visual examination of the uterine cervix after application of 3-5 % acetic acid. HPV tests identify the presence of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) that is the origin of cervical cancer. The procedure is an important tool for screening of cervical cancer in low resource settings as it simple, easy to perform and cost-effective.

The workshop has given the team the tools to better identify opportunities to influence and persuade health partners the Clinical office works with to help grow the overall business and reach team goals.
