In 2009, The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) awarded its biggest research grant to date to the HPV Cervical Cancer Research Fund, under the auspices of Prof Greta Dreyer. This grant enabled a group of researchers from different disciplines to conduct a project to investigate large-scale cervical cancer screening of peri-urban women using cytology and molecular testing. The main findings of this study, performed in the Tshwane Health District, are reported in this supplement which is introduced by Dr Carl Albrecht, Head of Research, CANSA.
