Summary of "Pilot of an International Collaboration to Build Capacity to Provide Gynecologic Oncology Surgery in Botswana."

Gynecologic malignancies are the leading cause of cancer death among women in Botswana. Twenty-five percent of cervical cancers present at a stage that could be surgically cured; however, there are no gynecologic oncologists to provide radical surgeries. A sustainable model for delivery of advanced surgery is essential to advance treatment for gynecologic malignancies.
