life on the line
Mavuto: The Forgotten Women

Malawi has the highest rate of cervical cancer in the world. For many women, like 30-year-old Alice, the diagnosis is a death sentence. With limited access to the HPV vaccine, no radiation treatment for cancer anywhere in the country, and lack of screenings, this preventable disease has become a deadly health crisis. While Alice is fighting for her life, a nurse and an ex-pat doctor are giving their all to fight this disease and comfort those who are dying.
