The threat of cervical cancer is constantly overlooked in many African countries. To fight the common unawareness of this major thread, HerHealth made cervical cancer self-diagnosis easy with a combination of two simple tools: a smartphone and a handy little test pin.
Reliable medical treatment and prevention is still not a common good in many developing countries, especially for women. The risk of developing cervical cancer is 5-7 times higher in Sub-Saharan Africa compared to Europe – mainly because gynecological tests are not commonly applied. Margaret Nanyombi has developed a solution: the BVKit, a smart app and test pin for women to apply standard gynecological test at home.
