About this issue…

  • Greta Dreyer University of Pretoria


Cervical cancer remains a major public and women’s health problem both in our region and worldwide. In gynaecologic oncology it is both the most preventable and sadly the most prevalent malignancy in our tertiary hospitals and oncology units. It is therefore very appropriate and no surprise that much local research focuses on the prevention and treatment of this disease. In the current issue we publish four original research reports, three of these on the prevention, diagnosis and staging of cervical cancer.
