MoviCancer: Bringing Thermal Ablation for Cervical Cancer Prevention to Nicaragua

The MoviCancer Foundation is working to expand the capacity of health workers in Nicaragua to prevent and treat cervical cancer using a WHO-approved method for pre-cancer treatment known as thermal ablation. Portable, battery-powered thermal ablation devices now offer health workers the chance to treat women immediately following their clinical exam, without the need for electricity or gas. 

MoviCancer’s thermal ablation efforts are supported, in part, through TogetHER’s Cervical Cancer Grants Program, which provides small, highly targeted grants to programs generating the evidence needed to speed access and uptake of cervical cancer prevention technologies in low- and middle-income countries.​
