Dear Editor,

I would like to make a comment on the afore-mentioned news article.

I think this is a great step forward in the fight against Cancer of the Cervix, especially for Solomon Islands. Our women should be very grateful for this and put the facility to good use; not only in diagnosing and treating this deadly condition but also in creating awareness to those who are still in the dark and more importantly among the young who are our "women of tomorrow". A heartfelt thank you to Dr Pierra Pelizzatti for her timely act of kindness to the women of Solomon Islands; for from a healthy mother is borne a healthy nation.

Thank you!!
