PICCSI (Pacific Island Cervical Cancer Screening Initiative)

The plan for this pilot study would be to perform point-of-care HPV testing for women presenting for screening at local health centres, and to invite women to wait for their results (expected to be around 60 minutes) and have access to treatment on the same day.

Treatment would be performed by a specialised gynaecologist, or a gynaecology registrar being supervised by a specialist.

Ideally, all screening and treatment would involve training of local clinicians – general practitioners, health centre nurses and specialist registrars – so that the program could be run by local staff in the future. 

If the pilot successfully shows that large numbers of women can be screened and treated for cervical dysplasia in an acceptable and safe manner in Fiji, the aim of the PICCSI would be to roll out the program to other areas in the Pacific.
