These courses were designed for medical staff of all levels (gynaecologists, doctors, nurses, midwives, health workers). Between December 1999 and November 2009, 653 doctors/gynecologists and 210 nurses/mid-wives/health workers were trained.
The objective is to provide theoretical sessions followed by intensive hands-on experience in both screening by visual inspection, and treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. Duration of each course is 4 to 5 days, consisting of one day for theory and 3-4 day's for hands-on experience. Faculty include doctors either from Lyon, France (e.g.,for courses held in Frenchspeaking Africa), or doctors from our different collaborating centres/project sites.
Each participant is provided with topic-related literature from peer-reviewed international scientific journals, as well as the practical manual on visual screening for cervical neoplasia and/or the beginners' manual on colposcopy and treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. For each course, the consumables as well as the screening and treatment equipment are provided by IARC.
