Improving the follow up of patients with positive results to high risk HPV

When we visited the health center, they were in the process of completing annual check-ups, screenings, and treatment for women who had been previously found positive for high-risk HPV. When women are tested positive with high-risk HPV, they come in for a check-up once a year to receive screening and colposcopy. In the colposcopy, the doctors use a device called a colposcope to get a close look inside the cervix for any potentially cancerous lesions.
