Background "Targeted inter-university projects" (CIP) are time-limited academic cooperation projects (3-5 years with an extension of 12 months). They are jointly developed by a university institution - or institutions with equivalent teaching and/or research activities - of a developing country and several academic institutions in Belgium, members of the CIUF, as part of an initiative taken between scientific partners. A specific agreement between the Belgian State and the universities was signed in 1997. A strategic plan (2008-2012 extended in 2013) frames these programs. General Objectives: the general objective of the ICP Program, integrating the very nature of university cooperation and the principles of the CUD strategic plan, is to "contribute to the emergence and strengthening of partners and knowledge that enable universities in the South to assume their role as major actors in the development of their country and their region, by making available the know-how, skills and expertise of universities. Specific Objectives: the main results expected from this project are to develop a strategy for screening pre-cancerous and cancerous cervical lesions that are inexpensive and sensitive, to improve coverage of screening in five regions around Cochabamba, to reinforce colposcope use in the department of Cochabamba, to transfer all the results of research carried out by treating physicians and laboratories participating in the study, to verify the guidelines for the follow-up and treatment of pregnant women, to disseminate all the results obtained to motivate the public authorities and the departmental health care actors to continue strengthening the screening program. Results: Skills and capacities of southern university partners are durably strengthened and are mobilized in the resolution of development issues; the skills and capacities of southern university partners to develop and deliver university courses are durably strengthened and are mobilized in the resolution of development issues; the skills and capacities of our university partners in the south to disseminate knowledge to civil society actors, support and train them in order to solve development issues are durably reinforced.. This project was identified by RTI International for their own research purposes and some fields do not align with The GO Map categories. End dates were estimated as one year after the start date. The Project Type "Research, Clinical" may not accurately describe this project's focus but was used for all RTI International's Global Noncommunicable Diseases Initiative projects added in June 2018. Specialties were not analyzed. All project funding was valued in 2015 USD.
