Abstract

Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women in Botswana. The burden of HPV-related disease is exacerbated by the high rate of HIV infection, which has an estimated prevalence of 22.8% among adults aged 15–49. We implemented a demonstration programme to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of HPV self collection and testing using Xpert® HPV in Botswana.
