• The total number of incident cases of cervical cancer across the countries under study will remain relatively stable over the period 2016 to 2026.
  • The age-adjusted risk of cervical cancer will reduce by 4% to 20%  across the countries covered in this analysis over our 10-year forecast period largely due to improvement in screening practices in most countries.
  • Due to improving healthcare/screening services in the countries covered, we forecast a shift in the stage distribution at diagnosis towards earlier stages.

    Author(s): Nishant Kumar, MPH; Johnson Olabisi, MBBS, MSc

    Nishant is a senior epidemiologist and head of oncology within the epidemiology team at Decision Resources Group. He also covers some CNS diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. His key interests are developing interactive patient flows, and modelling disease progression to forecast commercially relevant drug-treatable incident and prevalent populations. Nishant also spends a lot of time collaborating with clients to help answer more specific questions through custom work and consulting projects.

    His qualifications include an MSc in Public Health with specialization in epidemiology and statistics from King’s College London, and a BSc in Medical Studies from the University of Birmingham.

    Johnson joined Decision Resources Group (DRG) in 2015 and with the Epidemiology team develops epidemiological populations forecasts for different infectious and non-communicable diseases with his particular interests in the oncology space.

    Prior to joining DRG, he trained as a community physician where he was involved in primary (patient) care, primary health care and various community research & activities. He has also supervised and coordinated various governmental and non-governmental public health projects. Johnson holds a Masters of Science in Public Health (Health Economics) degree from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine with a Masters in Epidemiology and Medical Statistics & a Medical degree from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria.
