Those who complete this module can, among other things, start cervical screening with HPV testing and VIA in their institutions.[They will need help with follow up of the screen positives]
Module 2: Advanced Trainees will get the opportunity to work with nurses at the centre and perform Visual Inspection with Acetic acid (VIA) and basic diagnostic colposcopy (with the mobile colposcope).
