The objective of this study was to assess long-term results among Thai women participants in the SAFE Study, 7 years after VIA screening. The VIA positivity rate on follow-up testing for both previously VIA negative and positive cohorts was exceedingly low (3.7% and 9.6%, respectively). Based on these results, rescreening with VIA at longer intervals may be warranted in low-resource settings.
