HPV Self-Testing Research
Research Project Aid
Aiding a research project to better achieve its goals by designing the subject’s experience.
We helped the IADB (Inter-American Development Bank), Uruguay’s Public Health System (ASSE) and three other government agencies (IM, AGESIC, Cancer Committee) to develop a process to carry out research for the adoption of a new HPV (human papillomavirus) test to screen underserved communities for cervical cancer.
We worked with a broad team of researchers to optimize processes while retaining the scientific value of the study, which will result in several papers and notes. Our participation helped select and craft tools and protocols to aid the collection of data and overcome any difficulties that may arise in the experience, not related to the study, but that could have hampered its objectives. As part of the project we wrote a technical note and a blog post published by the IADB.
