The aim of the ELEVATE project is the development of a cervical cancer self-testing device that can yield rapid, easy-to-understand results against low costs. Through an intervention the tool will be piloted in hard-to-reach communities in Belgium, Portugal, Ecuador and Brazil.
The ELEVATE project brings together a team of medical doctors, public health researchers, economists, biological engineers, and technology developers from several European and Latin American countries.
