This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Cameroon is carrying out an intensive cancer screening programme for women. Ten hospitals in the country's capital, Yaounde, are screening for breast and cervical cancer, the two most common cancers affecting women in Cameroon. These diseases are at an advanced stage in 75% of cases seen by doctors, consequently making the death rate quite high. According to the Panafrican News Agency, 40% of women identified by the University Teaching Hospital in Yaounde with breast cancer and 22% of those with cervical cancer die from their diseases.
