10,000 Pakistani women will receive free cancer screenings from a Chinese company.

5,000 sets of auxiliary consumables and three self-developed cervical cancer screening devices were recently sent to Pakistan by Landing Med, a medical technology company with headquarters in Wuhan, China. 10,000 Pakistani women will receive free cervical cancer screenings and early tumor detection thanks to these AI-powered devices.

The China-Pakistan AI Cervical Cancer Screening Program’s initial shipment of equipment is this. More will be given to Pakistan in the future. To provide statewide cervical cancer screening in Pakistan, Landing Med will also create a Cloud Diagnostic Research Center for Akbar Niazi Teaching Hospital.

AI screening outperforms artificial diagnosis in terms of speed and accuracy. A pathologist with experience can only evaluate up to 100 cell slides per day. Additionally, when looking at diseased cells under a microscope, some may go unnoticed that do not exhibit evident abnormalities in the early stages. On the other hand, the AI-powered screening equipment, based on decades of painstakingly gathered diagnosis data and algorithm models, can automatically discover evidence of cancer cells in digital photos within minutes.

The founder and president of Landing Med, Sun Xiaorong, claims that many women in Pakistan need cervical cancer screenings because of the country’s enormous population. In order to improve coverage, effective testing techniques are needed.

A 5G+AI cloud diagnosis platform has been created by the company to help women who live in remote areas with limited access to healthcare. This platform allows experts from more than ten different countries to consult on reports that have been uploaded, saving patients from having to repeatedly travel to the hospital for sample collection and report analysis.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by two think tanks affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and the Pakistani Ministry of Health to jointly provide AI cervical cancer screening services in Gwadar Port and other cities in Pakistan at the ninth meeting of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Joint Cooperation Committee in 2019. In order to carry out the scheme, Landing Med and its Pakistani partner inked a contract in November 2021.
