As part of WHO’s approach to cervical cancer control, availability of high quality, affordable medical devices for HPV screening, and treatment of precancerous lesions in low resource settings is indispensable. In previous WHO guidance books of Priority medical devices for cancer and Guidelines for screening and treatment of precancerous lesions of cervical cancer these medical technologies were listed. In order to increase access to these devices, WHO is presenting here the technical specifications and associated guidance to facilitate the procurement, and therefore availability of high quality medical devices for screening, diagnosis and treatment for precancerous lesions.
This document is to serve as a guide for the selection and procurement of the aforementioned product groups, describing the technical specifications as well as providing associated technical guidance required for proper use.
