Cervical Cancer in Nicaragua—Prevention Strategies and Implementation ChallengesCervical cancer is largely preventable, yet it remains the most common cancer among Nicaraguan women. Edwards will present the natural history of this disease to highlight potential points of intervention and reflect on the social, political and economic factors that help explain why cervical cancer mortality rates are 12-times higher in Nicaragua than in the United States.
