KAVI-Institute of Clinical Research is partnering with the Ministry of Health,

Bio-Zeq Kenya and Qiagen in various programs and training aimed at eradicating

cervical cancer from our society. This is being made possible by the application

of the latest cutting-edge technology available through integrated health



The partnership is a unique initiative bearing in mind that the ministry of health

is devolving health systems to the counties and that the initiative will go a long

way in the facilitating easy access of our services to the desolate areas with

depleted health resources.


We shall be holding a stakeholders conference that will bring together key

opinion leaders both locally and internationally with experience in cervical cancer

screening   to deliberate on the problem at hand (Human Papilloma Virus that

causes cervical cancer).


The conference deliberations will include:


  • Implementing screening programs in both urban and rural areas
  • Review of published clinically validated data
  • Gold-Standard Testing Solutions


This Conference will examine international, regional and national ‘best practices’

geared towards achieving vision 2030.  The deliberations will concentrate on

the means of eradicating cervical cancer and be a Platform for Action, to chart

the way forward towards achieving the goal.


The deliverables will be a set of substantive policy and action-oriented

recommendations that will be leveraged through all the forty seven counties.
