Abstract: Cervical cancer is the third most frequent cancer in women worldwide and the recent report on HPV and cervical cancer statistics in Sudan estimates that every year 1664 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 1354 die of the disease. It will therefore be disastrous to Sudan if nothing is done about this major health problem. This paper aims to raise awareness and understanding of the role of HPV infection and cervical cancer in Sudan. The paper argues that the initiation of VIC screening idea in Sudan through Midwives schools (Aldayat) will help detection of the abnormality cell in different parts of Sudan where no hospital or medical center is available.
