The Pacific Islands is a new opportunity for TruScreen, with cervical cancer rates being some of the highest in the world, we believe TruScreen would be an ideal fit for the region.

TruScreen’s Clinical Research & Training Officer, Dr. Carolina Velasquez visited Fiji between the 15th – 18th April, 2018. During this visit our TruScreen representatives visited 2 prominent health facilities, Viseisei Sai Health Centre, Nadi, and The Colonial War Memorial Hospital, Suva, and presented TruScreen to key gynaecological influencers in Fiji, conducting demonstrations and training.

We are now collaborating with experts in Public Health from University of New South Wales to have TruScreen evaluated by women’s health officials as a solution for government cervical cancer screening in the Pacific Region.
