Low- and Middle-Income countries have seen a dramatic rise in the incidence of breast and gynecological cancers in the past decade. Organized cancer screening programs are not widely available in developing countries leading to disproportionately higher mortality rates compared to those in the developed world.

A Well Woman Clinic concept providing such services as part of womenas health examinations is proposed, aiming to ensure patient compliance by limiting clinic visits required for initial testing and diagnosis of screen positive cases.An Integrated Approach for Screening and Early Diagnosis in Developing Countries Mahesh K.
