Identifying What Works: ACCP Research on Screening and Treatment Strategies
Visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) is one of several cervical cancer prevention methods that the ACCP is researching.
Findings from more than 20 of the ACCP’s demonstration and research projects offer important insights into the potential effectiveness of different screening and treatment strategies under a range of conditions. These studies examine visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA), visual inspection with Lugol’s iodine (VILI), VIA with magnification (VIAM), cytology, and HPV testing as means of screening for precancerous lesions. ACCP has also explored various protocols and methods for treating women with suspected precancerous lesions, including cryotherapy and LEEP, both in single- and multiple-stage approaches.
The resources below provide an analysis of the strengths and limitations of screening and precancer treatment approaches, and can help inform program managers and policymakers about key considerations when planning a cervical cancer prevention program.
