The Ibadan Cancer Screening Center for Women will educate 5,000 women on cervical and breast cancer. The participants will learn self screening techniques to detect signs of breast cancer. At least 1,000 women will receive cervical cancer screenings conducted by the medical health care professionals. At least 100 of the women will receive preventative cryotherapy to reduce their risk of cervical cancer. The project will take place in a community located near military barracks. Local health practitioners will be trained in detecting signs of both cancers and administering cryotherapy. This additional service will then be available to women in the community on a long-term basis.
