Truscreen Group Limited (NZX/ASX:TRU) is pleased to announce that the national regulator of Mexico, Cofepris has approved TruScreen access to the public health sector.

 

The approval allows TruScreen to expand its cervical cancer screening, currently, in the private health clinics to the wider public health sector.

The CEO, Dr Beata Edling commented:

“The Cofepris approval highlights the accelerating acceptance of the TruScreen technology globally. I am delighted that women in Mexico will have access to faster, more efficient, and reliable cervical cancer screening with TruScreen. We congratulate our partner, Sunbird on achieving this significant milestone and look forward to advancing cervical cancer screening in Mexico”.

 

This announcement has been approved by the Board.
