Millennium Fellowship Project: Cervical Cancer - Join the Fight
My project is in line with the Sustainable development goal 3 (SDG 3) which talks about good health and well-being. It focuses on the 4th most common cancer in women, one that is almost completely preventable but is estimated to have been responsible for 311,000 deaths and 570 000 cancer-related diagnosis world wide in 2018 only, with this information I plan to raise awareness about cervical cancer using the slogan ‘ Cervical cancer-join the fight’ goals are to use my access and resources at the hospital to raise awareness about cervical cancer in HIV positive patients. Educating them about cervical cancer screening , prevention and addressing any misinformation about the disease and it’s screening methods .
About the Millennium Fellow
Tisiyenji Kunda is a medical student currently in her final year of medicine in Zambia. She was born and raised in Zambia and always thought of how to help her community. She thought being a Doctor was going to be enough but as she continued to study and seeing patients at health facilities die due to lack of knowledge about so many important diseases in the community, she decided she needed to do more and has since then looked for ways to reach out to her community to help in the primary prevention of preventable diseases.
